Re: Donna's Pine Tree...

that's my tree! Sounds just like it with the twisted needles and all...
I am surprized to hear it will get that wide tho. It is about 5 ft high
but only less than 2 ft wide currently... seemed more to be a tall
slender, rather than huge. hum..... I did inquire about it before
purchasing, was told it could survive here well, just like other white
pines. It could take my sun and wind. The branches seem bendable so to
speak, so thinking I might be able to train it to be narrow... who

My mother also fell in love with it when she seen it yesterday. She had
the neighbor move it on her patio. It may not be my problem anymore as
she is looking around HER yard as to where it should go... sigh.

Subject: [CHAT] Donna's Pine Tree...

Donna, here is all I could find on it.  I couldn't find much info either...:

Pinus strobus
'Contorta'  A very distinctive, robust form with twisting yet upright
branches and trunk. The soft, light blue-green needles are also twisted.
Will grow into a pyramidal form for a unique garden show. Known since 1932,
from Seneca Park, Rochester, New York. 12"+ per year.  10+ ft.  Bluish Green
Upright Broad  Full sun.  -40 to -30 F 

It looks like it will get pretty big over time!  I'd give it plenty of room.
Other cultural info seems to be similar to about any other pine we grow in
the Midwest.
