From large to small, ornate to ordinary, plain or on a stick, Sunnyside Gardens is the place for pine cones!

Varieties
Sugar – The largest variety of pine cone, sugar cones can be between 9 – 12” long! We have these big beauties in their natural state, on a stick, painted silver or gold, or tipped in white.
Jeffrey – Jeffrey cones are the middle size, ranging from 6 – 7” long, and come from the south western United States. We also have these guys alone, on a stick, and tipped in white.
Ponderosa – Coming from the most widely distributed pine species in North America, the ponderosa pine cone is smallest, ranging between 3-5” long. Gather a bunch of these in a pretty bowl with some berries and greens for a quick, easy, and beautiful centerpiece.

Uses
Chandelier – The designers at Sunnyside use the large, gorgeous sugar pine cones to create beautiful pine cone chandeliers with a variety of ribbon and berry combinations sure to match your holiday décor.

Care
How to store pine cones – Your pine cones, regardless of variety, will last several seasons if cared for properly over the summer. They prefer to be kept in a dry place, hanging them, if you can do so, is ideal. Cover with a bit of cloth or plastic to keep them dust free. Easy!
