An Austrian Black Pine that was created by crossing Pinus nigra with Pinus densiflora. What an idea! The Swiss breeder, Henri Bregeon, selected this very worthy plant from his group of seedlings and will, no doubt become popular as time goes by. Besides just being a lovely compact plant, this cultivar is reported to handle just about any growing condition...windy, poor soil, coastal, dry and hot, what ever. The symmetrical growth pattern and the nice foliage color is attractive all year round. 'Pierrick Bregeon' will grow to be 3 ft tall and 4 ft wide in 10 - 15 years, so it can fit into smaller gardens easily. Relatively new and unique.
