Pinus densiflora 'Low Glow'

Pinus densiflora 'Low Glow' is a low-growing mound of short, bright, yellowish-green needles; bright yellowish-green foliage. Growth tends to be more outward than upward. Annual expected growth is 1-2 inches, producing a dwarf conifer 16 inches tall by 24 inches wide after 10 years.

Sidney Waxman of University of Connecticut found 'Low Glow' as a witch's broom seedling around 1985. It is possible that this is hybrid between Pinus thunbergii x densiflora.

'Low Glow' is a perfect little conifer for lighting up the foreground of the garden or conifer collection.
