Pinus strobus 'Blue Clovers' / Blue Clovers white pine

Pinus strobus 'Blue Clovers' is an upright, tree form of eastern white pine with open branching and amazingly blue, fluffy needles, with a slight twist, held in species-typical fascicles of five. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 20 feet (7 m) tall or more with a 15-foot (5 m) spread, an annual growth rate of 2 feet (60 cm) or more.

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected around 2005 by Jason Hupp at Western Evergreen Nursery, Silverton, Oregon. Jason named the plant in honor of his daughter Chloe, whose nickname is Clovers.
