Design IdeasBoldly textured, medium length needles make this sturdy, upright, multi-stemmed tree a favorite for areas in the landscape with a little more room. The slow-growing trees become taller than wide and quite bushy. Very hardy and uniquely dense, 'Big Tuna' is compact, but not dwarf. Buds turn showy during cold winter months and stand out distinctly against dark green foliage.
Care Information
Prefers well-drained soil. Not particular to soil type or pH. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. When pruning is necessary, only trim back the new growth of the current season.
