Go Back Pine Mugo Wintersonne

Pinus Mugo 'Wintersonne'

Plant Type: Conifer Shrubs, Dwarf Conifers

Winter Sun Mugo Pine

With the cool temperatures of autumn, this extremely hardy, compact mugo pine becomes an electric yellow color that persists through the cold season. Great for containers, the rock garden – or any landscape space that needs a little spark of color during the dreary winter months. Pinus mugo ‘Wintersonne’ loves full sun, well-drained soil, and responds well to spring candle pruning if a more compact form is desired.
