Pinus banksiana 'Velda' is a cultivar of the jack pine, a tree species native to North America. 'Velda' is a small to medium-sized evergreen tree that can reach heights of 15-20 feet and a spread of 10-15 feet. Its unique, twisted blue-green needles grow in bundles of two and can reach lengths of 2-3 inches.

This cultivar is valued for its striking foliage color and interesting form. It is a slow-growing tree that is ideal for smaller gardens and landscapes, where it can be used as a specimen or accent plant. 'Velda' prefers full sun and well-drained soil, and is tolerant of drought, heat, and wind.

In addition to its ornamental qualities, Pinus banksiana 'Velda' is also important for its ecological value. It provides food and shelter for a variety of wildlife, including birds and small mammals, and helps to stabilize soil and prevent erosion.

Overall, Pinus banksiana 'Velda' is an excellent choice for anyone looking for a unique and attractive tree that is easy to care for and has multiple benefits for the environment.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
