Pinus contorta ‘Hexe Fingers’
Pinus contorta ‘Hexe Fingers’ (“Witch fingers”) is a new cultivar that was grown from a seed obtained from a Pinus contorta witch’s broom cone that was found in the wild, up in the Cascade Mountains of the Pacific Northwest. The broom itself was in poor health so we only retrieved the cones to obtain the seeds. We chose this lodgepole pine seedling because it has an interesting miniature growth pattern and witch’s finger-like buds from late summer until it pushes the following spring! It is a very nice looking cultivar that is taking on a natural bonsai like habit!
