The Bristlecone Pine (Pinus aristata) is a small evergreen tree that grows slowly to 20’ tall and 15’ wide. The dwarf and irregular growth habit, which gives it a very attractive and picturesque form, makes it an excellent choice for a container, rock garden, or bonsai plant. It is a dense, busy, heavy trunked tree with ground sweeping branches. In youth it is symmetrical and narrow crowned. Bristlecone pines are long lived and can reach 1 or 2 thousand years in age. This species of Bristlecone is native to Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona. Bristlecones are hardy in zones 1-11, 14-19 and A2 and A3.
