Tiny Kurls Eastern White Pine

Pinus strobus 'Tiny Kurls'

Short curly needles give this mounded conifer a unique look. Its dwarf, oval globe has dark blue-green, twisted foliage, similar to that of Pinus strobus 'Torulosa', on a slower growing, more compact plant. A good specimen for smaller gardens, or planted en masse for unique texture in larger landscapes. Evergreen.
