Limber Pine (Pinus flexilis)

Landscape Use:
A long-lived tree, make sure it is planted in the best site.
There are Limber Pine in Alberta that are over 500 years old.
A pleasant addition to any winter landscape.
Blue green needles look good all season.
Full sun.

Special Conditions:
Limber grow on the rocky hog-back ridges just west of Calgary, which leads one to believe they like to be grown dry.
Irrigation will not aid this plant, so do not overwater; that is, the amount of rain we get in a season will be more than enough for this tough plant.
Mulched bed in a well-drained site works best for the Limber Pine.
