Carsten's Wintergold Mugo Pine

Pinus mugo 'Carsten's Wintergold'

SKU
04869
One of the finest of the gold-hued pines, on a dwarf form! Short, densely arranged evergreen needles are an attractive green in spring and summer, turning to a rich gold tone as cold weather arrives. Most intense color in colder climates. Creates a bold statement as a specimen in smaller gardens, or in groupings in larger landscapes.
