Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.
Winston Churchill

Bristlecone Pine

Pinus aristata

Please be patient.

That's right. Be patient. My bristlecones are not happy yet. I think they need a sandier soil than what I've got them in now. After two years the tallest is about 6" high.

They're hardy here. But they grow on their own schedule. Still, they would make a great accent tree at one end of a rock garden.

Bristlecone pines are possibly the longest lived organism on earth. Specimens in the high Sierra in California have been dated at over 4,500 years. Talk about planting for posterity!

Prices on bristlecones are twice standard for the size.
