Dwarf Siberian Stone Pine
The Dwarf Siberian Stone Pine is a unique variety that grows slowly to a height of about 4-6 feet, though it’s claimed that can eventually reach heights of 10-12 feet with great age and no pruning. Either way it makes for a very easy to harvest stone pine that can fit in small spaces and add a wonderful texture to the garden with its gorgeous glaucous blue needles, a unique feature of this variety.

In additions to it abundant crops of tasty nuts, Siberian Stone Pine is also prized for its attractive dark green foliage and dense, pyramidal shape. Its extremely slow growth rate makes it a good plant for small gardens.
