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. Trees of this pine can be large and dwarf, wide or columnar.

Fastigiata is a white pine variety from late 19th century. It is a medium tall tree of upright, narrowly pyramidal habit . Its soft needles are about 10 cm long, medium green with blue tones, and grow in whorls of 5. It grows fast and young plants benefit from regular pruning in order to harden the wood on upright branches not to bend when the tree gets older. It can reach up to 10m tall and 2m wide. Pruning or clipping can be done from late winter, and shortening or removing new shoots in mid spring.

Pines like sunny locations and well-drained, sandy soil, they usually do not require fertilizing unless they suffer from chlorosis in which case magnesium and ferrum-based agents should be used. They are practically maintenance-free. Fully hardy to about -34°C (USDA 4).
