White Pine is one of our area's standout native evergreen trees. 'Torulosa' puts a new twist on this old time favorite with curled, twisted needles that cover the plant and give it a different look and texture that is subtle but readily apparent in the landscape. The needles are soft and carry the same pleasing blue-green tinge that is one of White Pine's most agreeable characteristics but they corkscrew with 2 or more twists and give the tree and fuller, more fluffy look that the species. Like its regular needled parent, 'Torulosa' is a large, rapidly growing tree that performs well in full sun or partial shade so give lots of room and let your neighbors comment about this easy to grow, showy novelty.
