Pinus ‘thunbergii’

Common Name: Japanese Stone Pine


This stout and elegant pine species has a rugged trunk of rough dark red bark with fissures revealing a black underlay. The framework of irregular, layered horizontal branches give the trees wonderfully unique and interesting character. The Pinus ‘thunbergii’ would give fascinating dimension in an inner-city Japanese style garden; provide cultural latitude by framing an entranceway. Planted for centuries in Japan these trees can withstand heavy pruning to shape. Coastal hardy. Untrimmed growing to 30m.
