Truly a miniature, Pinus strobus ‘Sea Urchin’ has giant appeal. Soft bluish green needles cover this little mound that reminds one of its namesake, the sea urchin. Selected by Sydney Waxman in 1978, ‘Sea Urchin’ remains one of the most sought after miniature conifers. Its small rounded shape and very slow growth make it perfect for the patio garden in troughs or containers. Plant with companion alpine plants in the rock garden for excellent results. Like most miniature pines, annual removal of fallen interior foliage is beneficial. (Source: Iseli Nursery)
