Pitch-Loblolly Pine Hybrids from Musser Forests?
I just recieved a catalog from Musser Forests, and they list a new selection this year: a hybrid between Pitch Pine and Loblolly Pine. They state that it "combines the winter hardiness of Pitch Pine with the rapid growth of Loblolly Pine." It is listed as zone 4 hardy, and 2-yr seedlings as being 10-18" tall (by comparison, 2-yr seedlings of Red or White Pine are listed as only 3-6" tall). Anyone else know more about this hybrid? I'm tempted to order a few just to see. Oh, and does anyone know if they breed relatively true-to-seed, or are they cuttings-propagated?
