(Pinus flexilis)

Limber pine (Pin flexible) is a species of white pine native to the western rocky mountain ranges of North America. Fast-growing and tall, it can be a very long-lived tree, some specimens over 2000 years old being recorded. Its name is derived from its pliable branches, which have long, dark blue green needles in fascicles of five. It is a true mountain species, growing anywhere from sea level to 3000m. It can reach 20m in favourable conditions, 25m in exceptional specimens.

Germination: Soak in water for 24 hours. Cold stratify for 60 days. Plant in soil substrate 1-2cm deep.

Each packet contains at least 25 seeds.
