Pine, Connecticut Slate Dwarf White Pine (Pinus Strobus)
Another introduction of the late Dr. Sydney Waxman of the University of Connecticut, 'Connecticut Slate' is a dense, spreading, quicker growing Dwarf White Pine that feautures gray-blue colored needles that make it stand out from the many other varieties on the market currently. The medium length, slate colored needles are tightly packed along the stems giving 'Connecticut Slate' a full appearance even though it is not as tightly dwarf as other types. It's a great plant for a border area, thriving in full sun or partial shade, and it makes a beautiful specimen for a larger foundation area with color and form that is truly memorable.
