PINUS sylvestris 'Nana'
Nana Scots Pine, Scots Pine
This low mounded shrub is a dwarf cultivar of Scots pine, a medium to large evergreen tree from the upper latitudes of the Old World.
This cultivar has short, slightly twisted blue-green needles that darken in winter. The needles are held in bundles of two. The dense foliage is highly attractive against the cinnamon-colored scaly bark, making this cultivar a popular subject for topiary or bonsai.
Like all Scots pines, ‘Nana’ likes full sun, but does poorly in hot humid climates. This hardy conifer succeeds in well-drained, acidic to slightly alkaline soil. It makes an excellent choice for rock gardens and walls.
