One of the most outstanding of all Mexican pines, this lovely species from the mountains north of Mexico City easily achieves 25-30' in the garden, and quite quickly we might add, eventually becoming taller. Striking copper-orange bark and weeping needles of a cheery light green. Good for woodland edge specimen or even tropical effect. Plants from this collection have been reliable from 12 to 15 °F, USDA zone 8, with no needle burn; browning would be expected below. Drought tolerant though reliable summer water speeds growth.

Drooping green needles of a soft and fine texture make fine addition to the larger landscape. Reddish brown bark with age.
