This awe-inspiring specimen is our flagship pine, it was saved from extinction by founder of Lime Cross Nursery Jonathan Tate. It is hardy despite being a variation of a Mexican pine and will grow about 10-15 cm a year. It produces magnificent cones in the spring and provides all year round greenness. The needles form glorious plumes, making in a truly remarkable specimen. It was recently awarded a merit at Les Journées des Plantes de Courson, one of the most prestigious plant shows in the world.
It will grow well in all soil types but needs good drainage and some moisture.
