Pinus edulis 'Tiny Pout'

Pinus edulis 'Tiny Pout' is a tight conical selection of 2-needled Piñon pine with 1 inch (2.5 cm) long olive-green needles and nice tidy upright habit. At maturity, a well tended specimen will be about 3 feet (1 m) tall and half as wide, making the annual expected growth in the range of 2 to 3 inches (5 - 7.5 cm) per year. This is an absolutely outstanding selection for the high-desert or xeriscape garden.

This cultivar originated from a witch's broom found by Jerry Morris in 2007 in south-central Colorado near Cuchara pass west of Trinidad. Jerry described the broom as, "very tight;" found 6 feet (2 m) high in the host tree. He gave it the provisional name, Pinus edulis [#31].
