Pinus aristata 'Formal Form'

Pinus aristata ‘Formal Form’

Cultivated variety of Bristlecone pine with a narrow, uniform shape with clusters of closely held, 1½” long, green needles in bundles of five that radiate around the ascending branches, giving each the look of a bottle brush. Formal and long-lived, this slow-growing, bluish tree maintains its form with little or no pruning.
