Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to Great Design Plant: Rocky Mountain Bristlecone Pine
Planting notes. Bristlecone pine is best suited to cold, dry climates. Well-drained soil is imperative; keep it well away from lawns and other plantings that need regular irrigation. It may grow a bit faster with supplemental water during the hottest summer months, but will not tolerate heavy, wet clay soil.More: What to do in your garden this month
