Mountain pines and dwarf pines are common conifers of our gardens. Their limited size and dense habit is often welcome in less spacious areas.

Columbo is a mountain pine that has absolutely nothing to do with inspector Colombo. Its original name given in 1984 was Columnaris and it perfectly described its columnar habit. It grows slowly and dense, bears short, dark green, stiff needles borne in pairs. Thanks to its compact habit and columnar shape it will look good mixed with flat or prostrate growing plants and perennials.

Mountain pines are ideal for larger rockeries, small gardens or even containers on patios, and look great when surrounded by white sand or pebbles. They can be kept smaller by reducing the size of new shoots in mid spring. Pines need full sun and well-drained soil that will not be too alkaline, no fertilizing required. Fully hardy to about -40°C (USDA zone 3).
