Blue Jazz pinyon pine (Pinus monophylla ‘Blue Jazz’) is the most ornamental of all the dwarf pinyon pines.
Blue Jazz is the most ornamental of all the dwarf pinyon pines collected by Jerry Morris (a noted Denver plantsman) from naturally-occurring witches' brooms and introduced into cultivation. A dwarf globe shape, true blue needle color, and xeric nature make this conifer a real winner for water-wise gardens. Useful in rock and fairy gardens and large containers. Xeriscape.
Tips from the pros: Very little maintenance is required. Avoid overwatering or planting it in a shady location.
