Scots pine is a European native pine species, and is native in our country, too. Its makes the most beautiful and at the same time the most bizarre specimens in the wild. The species makes tall trees in the forests but there are also a few interesting varieties of smaller, even dwarf size, such as Moseri.

Moseri is a dwarf variety of Scots Pine from Moser Nursery in Versailles, France, from 1900. It has long, slightly twisted needles of soft green colour in summer and rich golden yellow in winter. It grows very slowly (8-12 cm per year) and naturally forms dense, broadly pyramidal shrubs with rounded top. Its size is about 2-3m tall and wide in maturity. Pruning is not needed but can be done in late winter or in mid spring when new shoots are shortened or removed completely.

Scots pines love insolated locations. Before fully established they like equal moisture but later than take long periods of drought probably best of all pines. The soil has to be well-drained, preferably acidic and moderately fertile. It hates over salting so avoid planting next to busy roads where salt is frequently used in winter. Absolutely hardy to approx. -40°C (USDA zone 3) and suitable for outdoor pots where it will need some fertilizing.
