Of the small different cushion shaped pines for the rock garden the shrub pine cultivar known as ‘Driscoll’ is rare and will adapt to a small growing area for years This dwarf conifer only grows to 6″ in height but can reach out to 16″ across after 10 years of growth. Each year only 1.5″ of new growth occurs.

I estimate this one to be 20 + years old.

You can always count on a showy colorful second flush this time of year.

One of my favorites.
