Chief Joseph Lodgepole Pine

The deep, rich, golden yellow winter color of Pinus contorta ‘Chief Joseph’ creates a striking beacon of brightness in the drab winter landscape. Light to medium green during spring, summer and well into fall, this very slow-growing Lodgepole Pine changes color dramatically as days shorten and temperatures drop. Found by Doug Will in the Wallowa Mountains of northeastern Oregon, it has proven difficult to propagate.
