Virginiana Scrub Pine, Jersey Pine, Spruce Pine
|The many forms and types of pines can be found in northern temperate zones and on mountains in the tropics. Some grow rapidly, others slowly. Some have silvery foliage, others are dark green. They range from dwarfs to 100-foot-tall trees. The size and form of their cones vary. All pines have long needlelike leaves grouped in clusters of 2 to 5. They are fairly drought-tolerant, with a few exceptions. Extended drought or pollution can weaken pines, making them susceptible to pests and diseases. They grow well in full sun and poor, but well-drained soils. Shape tree in spring. Too much water produces yellow needles.
Its open pyramid form becomes flat-topped with age. Branches grow irregularly, and become long, low, straggling, and scrubby. Foliage is yellow-green to dark green, yellowish in winter. Good for poor, dry soils.
