This sturdy, dwarf Bosnian Pine boasts a handsome, broadly pyramidal form that stays compact, neat and well-mannered. Trees gradually widen into a classic bell shape, narrow at the top, broader near the ground and about as wide as tall. A mature 'Irish Bell' displays a colony of upright branches, each one decorated with tufts of straight green needles and glistening white fascicles. The bright white accent gives the impression that light dances among the needles, a feature that accentuates the beauty of this useful ornamental pine and adds to its value as a striking garden specimen. Well regarded in the trade, this selection is a good choice for urban and suburban gardens for year-round impact.
