|Lore||Black pine is native to a large range of Northern African Atlas Mountains to Asia Minor and Eastern Europe. Its tolerance of poor, sandy and dry soils has led to its planting in a wide variety of conservation situations.|
|Average Size at Maturity||Forms a compact, dense mound 3 ft. tall, 4 ft. wide.|
|Bloom Time||Does not flower|
|Design Ideas||Small shrubby pines make valuable plants for difficult sites. Use as evergreen foundation planting. Well suited to shrub borders, along fence lines and in plantings that divide properties. In smaller hedges will help divert snow drift and drying winds damaging to less rugged planting. An excellent plant for pruning into creative shapes for the season and attractive under snow. Add to Asian gardens or integrate into wild and quasi-native landscapes for problem solving with a naturalized appearance.|
