P greggii Engelm.

P. patula var. macrocarpa Mast

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.
