...grown from seed received from Masonic Villages, Elizabethtown PA. This is the only plant with this unusual pink coloration...probably a hybrid?
I've read white pines hybridize easily. Could just be a random mutation too though. Are the needles in bundles of five?
Yes it's a 5 needle pine...there a Pinus wallichiana beside the parent tree and I'm sure Pinus strobus are in close proximity.
Well then thats an interesting tree then. It has happened before. Search for 'holford pine'.
I've seen pink colors like that with parviflora, Johnny.
Hi Dax, I think parvifloria is present there also. What's that cross called?
I don't know that it is called anything... One plus may be that the Asian species might be resistant to white pine blister rust.
I don't know the answer Johnny. The only hybrid of parviflora "that I'm aware of" is 'Negishii'. Edwin stated it's Pinus parviflora x pumilla 'Negishii'.
Nice. For info, my pure Bhutan pine (P wallichiana) came thru this winter w/no problem, even tho it's small & still recovering from a nasty transplant. Even expanding its buds alittle already.
Also interesting that most of or many of your seedlings could be hybrids. Pines are reluctant to "self" and tend to outbreed. If the seed tree is surrounded by other white pines, no telling what they are exactly. But that's really interesting in my opinion. If you have the room plant them all out, see what lives...
Wow. I feel like driving up to Elizabethtown and looking for a cone! In fact I was about to do it tomorrow to buy raw milk from the Amish, but the place I use is much closer to me on the southern side of Lanc. Co.
some time ago I asked about a p.parviflora and p. strobus cross and Resin called it Pinus ÃÂ hunnewellii.
