BREPO® is a beautiful dwarf hybrid pine from Switzerland, bred by Henri Bregeon in 1989. Initially it was called Pierrick Bregeon, and due to a well-deserved attention abroad, especially in America it was renamed to BREPO® by Jeddeloh Farms from Oregon, USA, in 2003. This name is much easier for non-French speaking gardeners, and brought the tree a huge commercial success. There's just one thing that still makes no sense: Why do they insist on calling it p. nigra knowing that is a cross between p.nigra (male parent) and p.densiflora (female parent)?

BREPO® is a very decorative dwarf pine variety. It has bright green, long needles that are thinner than p.nigra but are similarly stiff. It naturally forms symmetrical, rounded crowns which need no trimming whatsoever. It grows very slowly - only about 5 cm per year.

Thanks to slow growth and dense, handsome habit it makes a perfect standard tree of compact size when grafted on stems of various heights. It looks great as a small lawn specimen, it will be a perfect piece in a Japanese garden or in a large rockery surrounded by stones, white sand or pebbles. It can also be grown in a large outdoor container. It is also often used as a hardy substitute for tender pinus pinea.

Pine trees need full sun and well-drained soil that will not be too alkaline. No fertilizing required. Pruning is possible in late winter or late summer, never cut into branches which lack needles. You can shape the tree by removing or trimming "candles" - young new shoots before they develop proper-size needles. Make sure to provide a good and stable support for a few years before the stems gains strength - the crowns are very heavy and makes young or tall trees unstable. It is hardy to about -29°C (USDA zone 5).
