I’m Fred the Mugo Pine, and I’m native to the sunny mountains of Europe. My needles have a refreshing pine forest scent when crushed. I might reach 10 feet after 10 years, but only in the ground. In my pot I like to stay nice and small. I’ve been trained into this spiral shape. I'm an outdoor bonsai and prefer full or partial sun locations for optimal health.
Give me a deep watering by submerging my pot up to my rim once every week, or when my pot starts to feel about 1/2 lighter. Submerge for at least 20 minutes. In the height of summer, water me more often if I'm in full sun. Never let my pot dry out. In winter I go dormant. Leave me in a cold, protected spot through winter and water only on unusually warm days. I'll want to be in temperatures between 25 and 50 degrees in winter. You can prune me in spring, after my candles have formed.
