Big Tuna Mugo Pine
Pinus mugo 'Big Tuna'
|Description||Rugged and hardy conifer offers bold textured as a broad shrub or small tree. Excellent accent or in groups as a hedge or screen. Showy buds during cold winter months stand out distinctly against dark green foliage. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Slow growing; reaches 6 to 8 ft. tall, 4 to 6 ft. wide.|
|Design Ideas||Boldly 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.|
|Foliage Color||Dark Green|
|Companion Plants||Japanese Maple (Acer); Winterberry (Ilex); Switch Grass (Panicum); Dogwood (Cornus); Barberry (Berberis)|
|Care||Grows easily in enriched, loamy and well-drained soils. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune only to remove old, damaged or dead branches.|
