Pinus sylvestris (Central Massif) (French Blue Scotch Pine, Central Massif Scotch Pine)
The foliage of the French Blue Scotch Pine has a lovely bluish-green colour. The needles are quite decorative and stay bluish-green throughout winter. Neither the blooms nor the fruit have any aesthetic value. The shaggy orange bark is quite attractive and gives a lot of winter interest. Only full sunshine should be used to develop this tree. It prefers dry to medium moisture levels and well-drained soil, and it will drown if there is any standing water. It is drought resistant, making it an excellent choice for xeriscaping or the moisture-conserving landscape.
