Pine 'Blue Shag' - 2 Gal.


Pinus strobus 'Blue Shag'

Straight from the work of the late Dr. Sid Waxman at the University of Connecticut comes this beautiful, compact pine that just begs you to touch and feel it every time you see it. Soft, bluish-green needles are shorter than the needles of the species and are crowded together on tightly bunched stems to create a tight, yet very soft looking rounded mound that only grows about 4" per year. 'Blue Shag' will retain its round form and become a landscape focal point, so be sure to give it enough room to spread and plant it in a sunny site with moist, well-drained soil so that you can enjoy it to its fullest.
