Height: 5 feet

Spread: 5 feet

Sunlight:  full sun 

Hardiness Zone: 4a

Description:

A beautiful, tight, rounded evergreen with an upright habit usually trimmed into topiary form; slow growing with long needles; a wonderful accent plant for borders or framing walkways, makes an impressive green focal point in the winter months

Ornamental Features:

Brepo Dwarf Austrian Pine has green foliage. The needles remain green through the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant. The rough gray bark is not particularly outstanding.

Landscape Attributes:

Brepo Dwarf Austrian Pine is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub. When pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new growth of the current season, other than to remove any dieback. Deer don't particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Brepo Dwarf Austrian Pine is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • General Garden Use
  • Mass Planting

Plant Characteristics:

Brepo Dwarf Austrian Pine will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers dry to average moisture levels with very well-drained soil, and will often die in standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for xeriscaping or the moisture-conserving landscape. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.

This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
