Pinus strobus ‘Gold Painted’ (above & below)
Pinus strobus 'Winter Gold' (above & below)
Pinus mugo 'Aurea' (above & below)
Many people see a pine tree and refer to it as an evergreen. I was no different until the gardening bug surprisingly bit me.
Pines, as any conifer geek will tell you, are not all so called "evergreens". Many conifers turn a brilliant gold color in the winter months. The photos posted above are just a sample of the wide selection of pines that offer fantastic winter interest. There is nothing better then on a cloudy winter day to walk in the garden and see the great glowing golden pines.
