This cultivar originated as a witch’s broom found by Johann Wieting of Giesselhorst Germany. The cultivar name is actually a combination of the names Wieting and Giesselhorst. This cultivar is very desirable to the conifer collector because it is one of the few existing cultivars of Pinus × schwerinii. It was also one of two plants selected in 2014 for inclusion into the ACS Collectors’ Conifer of the Year Program. — American Conifer Society
