Howell's Dwarf Tigertail'

A spreading flat-topped form that will eventually develop a central leader unless the leader is pruned out. If the leader is retained, plants may grow in an irregular pyramidal form to 4-6′ tall over the first 10 years and eventually mature to 20′ tall or more. Without a leader, plants grow much shorter. Bicolor needles are green on top and silver-blue beneath. Cones emerge an attractive reddish-purple. ‘Howell’s Dwarf Tigertail’ is synonymous with ‘Howell’s Dwarf’.
