Comments:

A perfect selection made by Oregon Pride Nurseries, this Limber Pine is a more intense blue than 'Vanderwolf's Pyramid', and more upright in habit.  Not recomended for planting south of zone 7.  Unlike other Pinus flexilis, 'Northern Blue' has shown no signs of winter burning in Pacific Northwest winters or Michigan test plots.
