Pinus montezumae 'Sheffield Park'
Hi all. I recently got hold of a nice young specimen (2 yr old graft,I presume) of this wonderful pine . The motherplant grows in 'Sheffield Park' in East Sussex ,Great Britain. It was planted in 1910 .
Could someone have a guess as to what the understock might be (mainly for cultivation reasons) and -in case someone is growing this in Zone 7- where to site it and any other cultivation tips that might be useful.
I haven't been able to find much information about this veteran P. montezumae (100 years in the ground + a few more as a seedling,I presume).Anyone in Britain 'met' him?How does he fare during those occasional cold winters?
Thanks in advance for your input. T.
