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.

Tiny Curls is a picturesque selection of white pine with twisted needles and straight trunk and branches. The needles are mid green with a silver stripe. It is very similar to another variety with twisted needles called Torulosa but Tiny Curls show much more symmetrical growth, forming a compact, conical shape at a slower growth rate. Being new in the gardening world its ultimate size is not known yet but only expected: about 2-3m tall and 1-1.5m wide in 20-25 years.

Pines like sunny locations and well-drained, sandy soil, they do not need much fertilizing. They are practically maintenance-free. Fully hardy to about -37°C (USDA 3).
