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. Glauca is a selected variety with blue green needles that are longer compared to those on Watereri variety and not so stiff. In colder months of winter and early spring they seem almost silvery blue as the plant does not produce much chlorophyll.

Scots pines reveal their beautiful colour of bark from upper parts of the tree where it becomes amber-yellow to copper-orange, peeling off in large flakes. These flakes are thin and, while still on the tree, look fantastic when the sun shines through them.

Glauca Scots pine is more regular in habit compared with the species. It makes a somewhat pyramidal shape with a rounded top. It is slow growing and it can easily be clipped to maintain a smaller size by cutting off half of the new growths in early spring, or by removing them entirely.

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).
