Pinus aristata is a very slow growing and incredibly long lived Pine tree which is native to Southwestern parts of the United States. The sparse needles are short and grey-green green in colour. These gradually develop into very small trees but are not for instant gratification, taking years and years to grow.

Very established specimens eventually develop distinctive gnarled and twisted trunks. Requires a sheltered position in full sun with good drainage. Avoid cold, windy or waterlogged areas.
