Pinus cembra 'Herman' Extremely hardy with a beautiful form, Prairie Statesman® will make an elegant statement under some of the harshest conditions. Soft, deep green foliage, with a dash of silvery blue, embellish this perfectly symmetrical tree. Its columnar habit provides a narrow footprint making it suitable for the home garden as well as large landscapes. Drought tolerant and extremely cold hardy, it is an excellent selection by Dr. Dale Herman, North Dakota State University. Prefers full sun in well drained soil.
