Much of Ryan’s advice on pines is based on whether the species is long- or short-needle, and single-flush or multi-flush. Does anyone know what Austrian pine, Pinus nigra, is considered to be? It’s a single-flush, but its needles seem to be sort of, well, “medium”. So do I treat it like a ponderosa, or like a Scots?
(Sometimes after 30 years one still has beginner-level questions. Never be afraid to ask them.)
