Renowned for its mammoth cones, this evergreen tree grows to gargantuan heights in its native haunts in the western North American mountains. In cultivation it is typically of more modest size. The long, blue-green needles of this pine occur in bundles of five on horizontal to slightly drooping branches. In spring, trees produce tiny male cones and enormous cylindrical female cones near the branch tips. The solitary or clustered female cones are sheathed with fleshy green scales that turn woody and yellow-brown as they mature. Two-year-old cones open their scales to release large edible winged seeds before falling thunderously from the tree. Slow-growing and of slender conical habit when young, this pine eventually develops an open, oval crown and a stout trunk. Its reddish-brown to gray-brown bark becomes deeply fissured and platy with age. If wounded, the trunk exudes a sugary sap that was prized by American Indians. (source: learn2grow.com)
