Pinus flexilus ‘Vanderwolf’s Pyramid’ – Vanderwolf Pine is an upright, pyramidal tree with closely spaced, twisted, silvery blue-green needles. It’s flexible branches and shaggy bark make this tree an excellent accent to the landscape.
We have only recently started growing this tree, but so far we love it. The needle color and texture really stands out. There is a subtle silver stripe on the needle that fools your eye into thinking it’s blue, making you do a double-take when looking at it. It seems to grow at a medium speed. Our only drawback is that it’s hard to find enough quality starter liners for us to plant out – otherwise we would be growing more of these beauties!
