Pinus mugo subsp. uncinata ‘Tukan’

A Polish variety of mountain pine with originally two-colored needles. The plant takes the form of a hemispherical bush and grows up to 2 m in height. Its characteristic feature is the yellow-green color of the needles. The needles are thick, stiff, arranged radially around the shoots. Their bases turn pink, especially near the apical buds, and during periods of frost they become clearly pink-red. Fully frost-resistant, light-loving variety, indiscriminate in relation to the soil. It grows excellently in permeable, moderately moist soils, in sunny positions. The variety is recommended for home gardens, rockeries and moors, for creating colorful, contrasting compositions with conifers.
