Of the small cushion shaped pines for the rock garden the shrub pine cultivar known as ‘Driscoll' is rare but very interesting. This dwarf conifer only grows to 6 inches in height but can reach out to 16 inches across after 10 years of growth. Very dwarf and slow growing. Each year only 1.5” of new growth occurs.

I like that Dave. I'll bet it's a semi-difficult conifer to graft and hence the rarity.

Nice specimen you've Dave!

Dax, this one is pretty rare which will not say that it's difficult to propagate.
You can graft it on every 2 needled Pinus understock.

This is the one at my collection
