Yes, you read it right! My Yamadori Mugo Pine from Italy is back budding all over on older up to pinkie thick bare branches! There goes the “Mugo Pine not budding back where there are no old needles” theory! But Big Ron is that famous exception to that rule! He is an old from top to bottom hollowed Italian Mugo Yamadori that does not follow those rules! Just look below at all those buds!
Below: Everywhere enough new growth so that in the future I can shorten the eventually too long branches back to all that new growth! Keeping them full and much shorter to the mainframe!
