Pinus Mugo Pumilio (Swiss Mountain Pine)

A prostrate conifer with dark green needles on upright pointing branches. Overtime it will gradually achieve a couple of metres in height and spread, as it does in its home territory of the Pyrenees, the Alps and the Balkans.

 

This needs full sun and any soil as long as it is well drained, even in exposed positions. It will grow by the coast but it would need shelter. Prune in late winter during dormancy if required.

 

N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.

As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.

Please remember that these coloured labels are only a rough guide.

General Point about Plant Hardiness: The commonly held belief that it's better to 'plant small' is perfectly true with herbaceous plants, but not necessarily true with woody plants. They need some 'wood' on them to survive severe cold - so plants of marginal hardiness in very cold areas should really be planted LARGER, rather than smaller, wherever possible.
