Pinus radiata Aurea is otherwise known as Monterey pine. It is an attractive conical shape when young, eventually forming a large, broad-topped tree. The needles are long at 10-15cm long and golden yellow. Brown cones are produced in clusters on mature trees and remain in place for years.
In 20-50 years, it will reach its ultimate height of at least 12 metres and at least 8 metres wide.
Plant in a South-facing or North-facing or West-facing or East-facing aspect and will be ok on a expose or sheltered site. Prefers well drained chalk, clay, loam or sand.
