The nursery that sold this claims this very dense, soft needled dwarf white pine is very hardy,and very tolerant of adverse conditions including shade. Tag identifies it as a very full rounded tree to 20 feet, good for screening. Indeed mine has had three months in a pretty shady spot that's not fertile naturally, and it is doing well so far where other pines and hemlocks have failed. I like the fact that the needles are quite soft, much like the 'Soft touch' cultivar.
