|Description||Intriguing specimen with unique purple-blue cones when young, maturing to brown. Dense, pyramidal tree makes a fine landscape specimen, accent tree or windbreak. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Slow grower to 40 ft. tall, 10 ft. wide, larger with age.|
|Design Ideas||This columnar pine is a great low-maintenance evergreen for suburban homesites or parks. Very useful to separate multistory homes on very narrow lots. Plant densely for a noise-absorbing, wind-cutting wall of green. To appreciate its natural beauty, plant as a single specimen or in groves of three to five.|
|Companion Plants||Grow Bosnian Pine as a vertical background of evergreen foliage to highlight more spectacular trees in the foreground. Try Eastern Redbud, (Cercis canadensis), Radiant Crabapple, (Malus x 'Radiant')or Red Buckeye, (Aesculus pavia). May also stand nicely with columnar Lombardy Poplar, (Populus nigra 'Italica') or Cologreen Juniper, (Juniperus scopulorum 'Colorgreen').|
|Care||Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.|
|Lore||Pine is one of the primary woods for provincial European furniture making.|
