Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
PINUS sylvestris 'Saxatilis'
Saxatilis 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 stubby, slightly twisted blue green needles that are held in bundles of two. This extremely slow-growing cultivar eventually forms a dense, mounded, waist-high shrub.
Like all Scots pines, ‘Saxatilis' 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, walls, and bonsai.
