Pinus nigra ''Hornibrookiana'

After Murray Hornibrook, an authority on dwarf pines.

Plant Description:

A dwarf evergreen conifer with short, stiff, glossy green needles. Very dense with an irregular globose form. Discovered as a witch's broom in Seneca Park, Rochester, New York. Prefers full sun in well-drained soil. 2' tall x 2' wide in 10 years. Hardy to -30 degrees.

Beautiful conifer. Look at this ageless specimen from The US National Arboretum:

The first one Dax shared reminds me of a giant Mugo.

Dave, whoever it was that said you are posting too much is crazy. Keep sharing. Thanks for all your contributions.

Perhaps mildly off topic--How susceptible are these nigra cultivars to tip blight and the other afflictions the species suffer from?
