Upright Swiss Stone Pine

Thanks to the insight and efforts of conifer proponent, Mr. Van Hoey Smith, this old (1855), distinctive cultivar was maintained and shared, assuring its preservation when conifers were not yet popular. Iseli received scions of the compact and slender Pinus cembra ‘Stricta’ from the Trompenburg Arboretum Holland in 1988. Its distinctive shape, dense foliage and slow growth make it valuable and unique despite newer selections. Less blue than others, it takes on a muted gold cast in winter and complements gardens with yellow hues.
