The Pinebush (Pinifolia) is generally described as a perennial shrub. This is native to the U.S. (United States) has its most active growth period in the year round . The greatest bloom is usually observed in the indeterminate, with fruit and seed production starting in the year round and continuing until year round. Leaves are not retained year to year. The Pinebush (Pinifolia) has a long life span relative to most other plant species and a slow growth rate. At maturity, the typical Pinebush (Pinifolia) will reach up to 8 feet high, with a maximum height at 20 years of 4 feet.

The Pinebush (Pinifolia) is not commonly available from nurseries, garden stores and other plant dealers and distributors. It can be propagated by bare root, container, seed. It has a slow ability to spread through seed production and the seedlings have low vigor. Note that cold stratification is not required for seed germination and the plant cannot survive exposure to temperatures below 29°F. has high tolerance to drought and restricted water conditions.
