Bristlecone Pine vs Limber Pine

Pinus aristata

Pinus flexilis

Bristlecone Pine
Limber Pine

Bristlecone Pine is a small to medium evergreen with an irregular habit and contorted branches.

This extremely long-lived tree is relatively low maintenance and drought-tolerant.

It is known for its deep green to blue-green needles flecked with white resin, and its thin, scaly, grey-brown bark. Because it is extremely slow-growing, Bristlecone Pine is well suited to smaller properties.

Limber Pine is hardy, long-lived tree found specifically in sub-alpine areas of North America.

This slow-growing evergreen will attract birds and squirrels to your property. Limber Pine will be a beautiful ornamental tree for your yard.

We do not grow this slower-growing species each year due to smaller demand and the slow growth rate.
