Longleaf Pine Tree Seeds (Pinus palustris) 5+Seeds

$ 5.29

Size

Description:

The longleaf pine is an attractive medium to large evergreen, with long needles that distinguish it from other pines, and give this tree its name. The trunk is straight, and the relatively fire-resistant, orange-brown bark is made up of scaly, rectangular plates. Despite sometimes living for hundreds of years, and growing to heights of almost 50 metres, the girth of this pine is relatively modest, with few trees attaining a trunk diameter of much more than one metre. The male cones are cylindrical and purplish, and range in size from 3 to 8 cm, while the dull brown female cones are more ovoid in shape, and range in size from 15 to 25 cm. A particularly distinctive feature of the longleaf pine is the new-growth buds, which are characteristically silvery-white during the winter
