Taylor's Sunburst Lodgepole Pine
Pinus contorta 'Taylor's Sunburst'
|Description||Bright yellow spring growth provides a burst of color from this specimen conifer. Tiny, vibrant fuchsia cones appear on the colorful new growth, adding even more interest. The yellow needles harden to dark green by fall, ready to provide the perfect backdrop for next spring's growth. A highly adaptable, easy to grow, dwarf variety.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Moderate Growing: Reaches 12 ft. tall, 8 ft wide.|
|Design Ideas||Excellent as a specimen conifer. This selection tends to grow more upright and narrow, so it is suitable for smaller gardens. Plant where a verticle accent and some spring color is needed. The foliage will be green by the end of summer, making a nice backdrop for plants with attractive fall color.|
|Companion Plants||Japanese Maple (Acer); Winterberry (Ilex); Switch Grass (Panicum); Dogwood (Cornus); Barberry (Berberis)|
|Care||Performs best in well-draining, slightly acidic soil, but is highly adaptable and can grow in wet, boggy conditions. Do not amend the soil when planting. Water deeply, weekly during the first growing season; once establish, reduce frequency. Fertilize during the first year with a slow release fertilizer designed for pine trees.|
