Height: 3 feet

Spread: 24 inches

Sunlight:  full sun 

Hardiness Zone: 5b

Description:

A very small dwarf Japanese white pine; upright with horizontal branches and needles that are very small and thin; used almost exclusively in Bonsai

Ornamental Features:

Zuisho Japanese White Pine has attractive green foliage. The small needles are ornamentally significant but remain green through the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes:

Zuisho Japanese White Pine is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub. When pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new growth of the current season, other than to remove any dieback. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Zuisho Japanese White Pine is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • General Garden Use
  • Accent
  • Hedges/Screening
  • Vertical Accent

Plant Characteristics:

Zuisho Japanese White Pine will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 24 inches. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 80 years or more.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers dry to average moisture levels with very well-drained soil, and will often die in standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for a low-water garden or xeriscape application. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution.

This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.

This plant is not reliably hardy in our region, and certain restrictions may apply; contact the store for more information.
