I planted this tree in the spring 2008. It was a 4' ball&burlap tree. It's supposed to be VERY slow growing, up to 6" a year. That said, it's almost 12' about 6' wide at the base. It yellows more than a Wate's Gold pine tree. I'm not sure if they're sexually dimorphic or if they're asexual, but my tree has produced pine cones 2 years in a row. It sits on the SE corner of my yard, very xeric. Almost pure clay soil, doesn't get watered or fed.
