This pine is native to Russia and is commonly known there as Siberian cedar, though it is not a cedar species. The Siberian pine is very cold hardy and can survive down to extreme temperatures of -50 C or greater, a good choice for very cold regions in Canada. It has five needles per fascicle and the cones are 5-9cm long, filled with seeds approx. 1cm long. The sizeable seeds are often eaten by birds and squirrels as food.
Germination: Soak in water for 24 hours. Cold stratify for 90 days and plant in a soil substrate.
Packet contains at least 25 seeds.
