Pinus mugo 'Varella' (Standard)
Size: 6-9 inch head (24" Std.)
Growth Habit: Dense form reaching 2 feet in ten years
USDA Zone: 2-8
Exposure: full sun
Growing Conditions: well drained soils
Comments: Dark green needles are two different lengths on the same plant. Mature needles are long and slender with a slight twist and the needles towards the end of the branches are whorls of short needles. the two-toned effect becomes more pronounced as the plant ages. Provides a nice contrast for this rarely offered dwarf mountain pine form.
