|Design Ideas||This is a great hardy Pine for medium-sized suburban homesites. Its size is perfect for grouping with fall leaf and spring flowering trees in natural arrangement. Plant as a dense grouping to provide woodland background or an enclosure for water gardens or natural swimming pools. Makes a great single accent or flank a driveway entry with a pair. Low and wide, it won't obscure second-story windows. Its horizontal branching affords welcome shade in summer. Also a great small-scale windbreak or shelterbelt component.|
