Mature Width: 10 to 20 feet
Soil: Acidic, Sandy, Well-drained

Hardy, compact evergreen tree with short, stiff, blue-green needles bearing sharp, pointy tips. Needles are aromatic when crushed. Mature needles develop a whitish bloom with age, hence the common name. Produces cylindrical, light brown cones up to 2.5 inches long. Tolerates drought and salt. Provides shelter for songbirds and small mammals.
Note: This year we are offering plugs rather than bare-root seedlings. Rooted in soil, plugs do not require immediate planting, have less transplant shock, and have a greater survival rate than bare-root seedlings.
IMPORTANT REMINDER: Conifer plug orders are due March 15, 2023!
Tree plugs, 1 yr, 10-12”
