Pinus Leucodermis Heldreichii Satellit or Satellite is also known as the Bosnian Pine
In need of a good looking conifer for an exposed spot? The Satellite Bosnian Pine is a beauty with its long, luscious, dark green needles that grow in dense clusters. As it matures, this lovely evergreen conifer has a naturally neat conical habit, developing a beautiful columnar shape. The Bosnian Pine tree has dense bottle brush branches ending with oval cones that will remain on the tree often for years. The dark green needles can reach 11 cm in length and give this tree a really sumptuous look and this will increase as the tree matures.
The conical shape and deep evergreen foliage make this one of the most attractive conifers. Because of its columnar growth habit, this conifer is perfect for use as a screen in small, tight spaces.
Pinus Leucodermis trees are extremely hardy, although commonly known as the Bosnian Pine these trees actually originate from South East Europe in the mountainous regions of Italy, the Balkans and Macedonia. They will survive temperatures down to -45 and are extremely tolerant of exposed cold winds.
