Pinus banksiana 'Vladař'

Pinus banksiana 'Vladař' is a dense, uniform, globose selection of Jack pine with bright, shiny medium-green foliage. Typical rate of growth in most areas is 1 to 3 inches (2.5 to 7.5 cm) per year resulting in a mature plant that will be at least 2 feet (60 cm) tall and wide after 10 years in the garden.

This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found by Jan Beran of Czech Republic.
