Dwarf form, with wide pyramidal habit that always remains dense. Adapts well to being grown in pots, tubs and troughs either alone or with other dwarf conifers of different colours. Grows in all types in poor, dry soil. Immune to disease and parasites. Because of its slow growth rate it is suitable for not very large gardens. Makes beautiful groups in parks. Of all the pines, it is the least demanding as regards soils and climatic and environmental conditions.
