Discover the wonder of Pinus longaeva, also known as Great Basin Bristlecone Pine, Intermountain Bristlecone Pine, and Western Bristlecone Pine. This medium-sized tree is found in the high mountain ranges of the southwest United States, boasting a unique bright-orange-yellow scaly bark and deep green to blue-green needles that can remain green for up to an astonishing 45 years. Pinus longaeva is one of three closely related trees known as bristlecone pines, and Methuselah, one of its members, is believed to be the oldest living non-clonal organism on Earth at 5,068 years old. As an ancient species, the Pinus longaeva has a gnarled and stunted appearance, and the oldest trees can be found on north-facing slopes. The species occurs in protected areas owned by the United States federal government, such as the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest in the White Mountains of California and the Great Basin National Park in Nevada. Don't miss your chance to grow this rare and special tree from one of our most popular bonsai seeds.
