Black Pine

The Black Pine is a beautiful conifer that is a great choice for your garden or a container. It has very dense thick needles of dark green to almost black. The foliage stays this deep rich color all year long. This tree has been bred for better smog and salt damage resistance which makes it good for the gulf coast. The black pine is a slow grower and keeps a nice pyramidal form. It takes well to pruning and is a good choice for a bonsai. Once established the black pine is wonderfully drought tolerant and carefree. Black pines make ideal specimen trees or focal points for your garden. They are a real eye catching addition to your landscape.
