Quick Overview:

‘Hillside Winter Gold’ is a fast growing (12″+ per year), upright, full-sized cultivar with an open, pyramidal habit. Typically grows 12-15′ over the first ten years, eventually reaching 30-70′ tall. Landscape size may be controlled by pruning, however, even to the extent of regularly shearing and growing this pine as a hedge. Features light green needles in bundles of five which turn an attractive golden yellow in winter. Brown cones (4-6″ long) are attractive to birds, but are often not produced until 5-10 years.

Description

Easily grown in acidic, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Prefers fertile soils and cool, humid climates. Intolerant of compacted, clayey soils, alkaline conditions, and many air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide and ozone.
