Jalako Red Plum Pine

Short wide needles with pointed tips are spirally arranged on stiff erect shoots. Noted for its unique seasonal color transformation; dark green foliage in summer changing to a deep red wine color in winter. Small and compact yet sturdy branching makes this a useful durable color accent in the shrub border or container garden. A seedling selection from Kools Nursery in The Netherlands. Named by nursery owner Nelis Kools, who coined the word Jalako in honor of his father Jan and mother Laura Kools.
