White (Weymouth) pines are very popular for their soft needles which you want to touch over and over again. They are usually long, silvery blue-green and come in whorls of 5. Pendula is a picturesque variety with arcing branches and weeping needles. The stem is commonly staked to a support on young plants and when a desired height is reached, support is removed and the pine makes its unique roof-like, cascading canopy. The branches may touch the ground on adult plants.

Pines are not pruned heavily, only new growths can be clipped or removed. Still, if you are after a really odd shape it can be trained by removing some branches or forming their growing angle. But generally it is left to its own devices as it makes a bizarre shape even without your help.

Pines like sunny locations and well-drained, sandy soil, they do not need much fertilizing. They are practically maintenance-free. We recommend avoiding planting ribes (currant) nearby as they host diseases harmful for white pines. Fully hardy to about -37°C (USDA 3).
