Ophir is a dwarf mountain pine with yellow needle tips from mid autumn until mid spring. They are evergreen, up to 7 cm long, and glossy. In late spring they change back to typical pine green colour. It naturally forms low, compact to almost congested shrubs of rounded habit with flattened top. It can be pruned or clipped in mid spring by cutting or removing new shoots.

This pine, thanks to its bright colour in winter, will look great in combination with evergreen shrubs with dark green leaves or needles because especially in winter it will make a stunning contrast. Dwarf pines are ideal for larger rockeries, containers on patios, and look great when surrounded by white sand or pebbles. 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).
