About Piñon Pine
A beautiful, small pine well-suited for container-growing, rock gardens, and small yards, Piñon Pine (Pinus edulis) comes from the desert mountains of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Wyoming. Also known as Nut Pine, this lovely tree is characterized by slow, bushy growth and small, roundish, light-brown cones containing large, delicious seeds valued for food.
Despite its hardiness and drought resistance, Piñon Pine is surprisingly uncommon in cultivation. The tallest Piñon Pine is over 70 feet, but this species usually stays much more compact, growing to typical heights of 10 to 20 feet over the course of decades. For pine nut production, plant several specimens to cross pollinate.
