Medium 6"-12" per year
Pinus sylvestris ‘Hillside Creeper’ is a strongly growing, completely prostrate selection of Scots pine with rambling, lax branches that, over time, will cover a significant portion of real estate. Foliage is attractive, thick, fleshy and a nice gray-green in color. In colder climates, in winter, the needles will assume a bit of a yellow-green cast. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 1 foot (30 cm) tall and 6 to 10 feet (2 – 3 m) wide, an annual growth rate of 8 to 12 inches (20 – 30 cm).
