Pinyon Pine.

1Gal Container (Up to 0)

Pinyon pine (or Colorado Pine) is a short conifer usually reaching less than 10-15 feet at the most, with two one inch needles per fascicle. It co-dominates (is one of the dominant species along with juniper) the pinyon-juniper woodland plant community. Pinyon pine cones are about two inches long and contain edible seeds. Pinyon pine is native to eastern California (rare in California) and needs no water after it is established. Associated plants include Coleogyne ramosissima, Menodora spinescens, Krameria parvifolia, Yucca baccata, Echinocereus engelmannii, Opuntia phaeacantha, Thamnosma montana
Pinyon pine is beautiful for small dry gardens. Pinyon pine prefers part shade to start, and after a few years,  full sun.
This is a good tree for bonsai or a small yard. Our one gallon sized plants are usually only a few inches tall.
