As its common name implies, the most noticeable feature of this tree is its cones. Pine cones vary greatly in size from species to species and are not always in proportion to the size of the tree.The big cone pine is not a common sight in Britain and is generally only found in private collections and a few large gardens, mainly in the warmer south and west of England and Wales.The foliage of Pinus coulteri has a distinctive, sparse look. Its leaves are made up of sharply-pointed needles that grow in threes and stick stiffly out the end of shoots. The colour ranges from mid-green to a more bluish hue while its cones are a pale brown. As well as being huge, the scales of the cone have a sharp hook on the tip and so should be handled with care. (source: apps.kew.org)
