One of the hardiest of pines, Austrians are able to thrive in occasionally very dry conditions and slightly alkaline soils, quite uncommon for an evergreen. However, when first planted this species of conifer needs as much water as any.

Austrians are fast growing [we’ve seen 2ft per year] and amazingly adaptive, tolerant of wind, temperatures of 20 below zero, mild road salt, air pollution, drought and hot weather.

A Highly Adaptable Pine

Although officially rated to grow as far south as zone 7, they can often be successfully grown into zone 8 once properly established. Austrian Pine plug seedlings thrive in full sun, but also do well in partial shade. They grow in sandy, well-drained soils as well as heavy clay.

Young Austrian Pine will retain lower branches and foliage, but these will often die off as they reach mature height. They therefore should be mixed with other species if you are planting for privacy or windbreak.
