Pinus peuce 'Jeddeloh' / Jeddeloh Macedonian pine

Pinus peuce 'Jeddeloh' is a vigorous, upright, tree-form of Macedonian pine. Young trees will be quite narrow with mostly fastigiate branching. With age, this conifer will definitely spread out becoming more broadly upright. Foliage is very dense along the branch and is very attractive, fluffy, Blue green in color. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 10 to 15 feet (3 - 5 m) tall and 4 feet (1.3 m) wide, an annual growth rate of 12 to 18 inches (30 - 45 cm).

Despite the name, this cultivar's origin in unclear. It only seems to have gained traction in the U.S. nursery trade in the early 2000s when Buchholz Nursery, Gaston, Oregon began promoting it. At least one large specimen that was assessed in 1998 is known to exist in Ohio's Dawes Arboretum. What's not clear is whether it originated at the Jeddeloh nursery of Oldenburg, Germany or Molalla, Oregon. It should be noted that the 'Jeddeloh' cultivar name is known in Pinus mugo, nigra and pumila as well as here in peuce. It is illegal to use the same cultivar name more than once within a single genus. With that, only the first-named of these pines can be considered valid.
