Pinus strobus 'Krüger's Lilliput' / Krüger's Lilliput eastern white pine

Pinus strobus 'Krüger's Lilliput' is a flattened-globose selection of eastern white pine with fairly dense, uniform branching and stout, shorter-than-typical blue-green foliage with silvery undersides. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 2 feet (60 cm) tall and wide, an annual growth rate of 2 to 3 inches (5 - 7.5 cm).

This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found in the mid-1960s, on a specimen of P. strobus 'Radiata', by Baumschule Krüger, Niemcy, Germany.
