Pinus leucodermis 'Compact Gem'
This Bosnian pine is popular as a attractive specimen, accent tree. Its lustrous, deep-green needles always look perfect and add to 'bones' to any landscape, plus is disease and pest resistance. Because it is slow growing, less than 10 inches per year, you can expect this tree to top out at 8-10 ft tall and 6-8 ft wide in 10 years. Performs best in full sun in moist, well-drained soil, and can even do well in a large container. Easy to grow and deer resistant as well. Pinus leucodermis is native to the Balkans, Italy and Greece.
