Marietta Pine Straw (Long Needle)
Marietta Pine Straw (Long Needle) comes the from leaves of a pine tree. In the fall, the leaves from the pine tree turn into a vibrant brown color then fall from the tree to the ground. Fall to early spring is the best time to purchase the most vibrant color Long Needle Pine Straw.
The farther away from the fall season the more the sun effects the straw as the color starts to fade over time. This being said, Long Needle Pine Straw purchased early and later in the summer will not be as vibrant in color as Long Needle Pine Straw purchased in the fall. Once the Long Needle Pine Straw falls to the ground it is then raked and baled to you as a decorative ground cover.
