Pinus contorta 'Chief Joseph'

Pinus contorta 'Chief Joseph' is a dwarf conifer reknown for its stunning winter coloration. Spring pine needles emerge a light green and slowly ages to darker tones in the summer. In the winter, that's when the real showcase begins. The needles transform into an amazing spectacle of bright yellow and gold.

Pinus contorta 'Chief Joseph' is a slow grower and makes an excellent choice for the smaller urban garden. Definitely a 'wow' factor plant for those seeking a focal plant in the winter.

Pinus contorta 'Chief Joseph' was discovered in the Wallowa Mountains in Sandy, Oregon. It is named after the chief of Wallow Valley Nez Perce tribe, Chief Joseph.
