Very low water needs once established. In Fact, this tree can be found in the deserts of Utah! Hybridized varieties include 'Formal Form' and 'Sherwood Compact', but are usually only available in smaller sizes. Because Bristlecone Pine are often collected rather than nursery grown, they vary widely from slender to fat and even multi-trunked! Please specify a preference when ordering.
