Michoacan Pine

Pinus devoniana

The Michoacan pine was originally brought into the arboretum as Pinus durangensis but was recently identified by Chris Ecroyd (Scion Research) as Pdevoniana.

It ,along with many others in this subsection of Pinus, has striking long needles and incredible blue pollen cones in early spring.

The Michoacan pine comes from Mexico and is often confused with P. montezumae.
