Have you been hoping to find an evergreen tree that won’t outgrow a modest sized space, look really nice year round, is very resistant to winter burn, has tough medium length needles, can tolerate extreme cold and relentless winter sun bouncing off snow banks, and can withstand winter time salt spray blowing off a busy street or highway? Tannebaum Mugo Pine may be just the tree you’ve been looking for, and it is also a very nice looking evergreen that is so winter hardy that it can withstand temperatures in excess of minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Sporting an upright and pyramidal shape, Tannenbaum Mugo Pines are completely different from their Dwarf Mugo Pine cousins. While Tannebaum Mugo Pine looks very much like a compact Red Pine or Scotch Pine, the more familiar Dwarf Mugo Pines have a short rounded half dome shape that gradually grows irregular as they grow to a surprisingly large 6′-8′ tall. Tannebaum Mugo pines mature to an upright triangle shape to slightly over about 15 feet tall by 6 feet wide. You should be able to decorate your Tannenbaum with holiday lights for many, many years.
We planted a Tannebaum Mugo Pine on a south-facing hillside here at the garden center where it gets regularly coated with salty road spray every winter. I was really surprised how well it has stood up to these brutal conditions. Stop in here at Knecht’s and look at our star Tannenbaum Mugo Pine. At this time we carry Tannebaum Mugo Pine in five different size containers with a variety of price pints to choose from.
Plat Tannebaum in fairly sunny locations with good drainage. Avoid wet sots and excessively shady locations.
