Editorial Note

The text below is from (Bean 1976) who discussed this taxon below Pinus patula. We are reorganising articles within Pinus to enable a partial revision of this important genus to commence in late 2023. See the Editorial Note at the beginning of the genus article for further details.

TC, October 2023.


This pine from N.E. Mexico is closely akin to P. patula but less ornamental. Leaves in threes, bright green, shorter and not so pendulous. Cones like those of P. patula, but tawny yellow. The bark is very different, smooth and grey on young trees, grey and fissured on older trees. The tree at Leonardslee in Sussex mentioned in previous editions still exists and measures 47 × 6 ft (1962). In the National Pinetum at Bedgebury in Kent was a tree measuring 53 × 5{1/2} ft (1970) which grew originally in the Temperate House at Kew and was moved to Bedgebury in 1926. It died in 1973.
