Oregon Green Austrian Pine

Pinus nigra 'Oregon Green'

SKU
01941
Deep, glossy, rich green, stiff needles densely spaced and curved against the branches give the appearance of large pipe cleaners. The unique, more open form with asymmetrical branching creates a striking landscape specimen. In the spring there is a firework explosion of pearly white candles that come out in clusters. Evergreen.
