mugo pine # 39

This is a mugo pine, Pinus mugo, which was collected in Switzerland in 2000. It hung around in my garden until in August of 2007 Uli Ernst borrowed it for a demonstration in my garden at the late summer meeting of 2007. He created a literati twin trunk cascade with a third trunk which was dead already. Afterwards unfortunately the upper trunk died and the tree got somewhat neglected. I refurbished it today and now it seems that it is on a good way again.
