Short Needle TRUdwarf® Mugo Pine

Pinus mugo ‘Short Needle’ proves that sometimes the best prize comes in the smallest package, as with the tiny, quintessential alpine conifer. An extremely slow-growing introduction from Iseli Nursery, it stands out among Pinus mugo selections for its unusually tiny needles that cover very short branches. Many visible buds punctuate the foliage and contribute to the dynamic presence of this dense, slightly irregular, miniature bun. A reliable, very hardy TRUdwarf® selection.
