Comments: Another very slow growing form of Mountain pine discovered by Horstman near the town of Graubunden, Switzerland in 1983. This original plant was estimated to be 400-500 years old and measured a whopping 20 x 28 inches! Ours grow a little faster then this thanks to regular irrigation and fertilizer, but it probably is still our slowest growing conifer.

NOTE: The automatic shipping charge will likely be too high. If so adjustments will be make to reduce this.
