'Golden Ghost' Japanese Red Pine

'Golden Ghost' Japanese Red Pine

Pinus densiflora ‘Golden Ghost’ is a remarkable tree. The spring flush presents light green needles that turn a stunning yellowish white in mid summer. This tree always amazes people as they have not seen a white needled pine before. The effect is shimmering and eye boggling. Other Japanese Red pine cultivars that present similarly include: Pinus densiflora ‘Burke’s Red Variagated, and Pinus densiflora ‘Ogon-draconis’. The culitivar ‘Golden Ghost ‘is probably the most white of all. This tree is grafted on the species, and seems to tolerate full sun without a problem. Winter color can look a little drab, but the summer show far than makes up for a few dreary months.

    Sorry, we don’t ship. We’re a small nursery and not set up for that.

    Can you sell cuttings (5 or 10) for grafting?
    How much will be with shipping to 07039?

      What I mean by cultural factors are if the plant is grown in a pot versus in the ground. Sometimes plants grown in pots over time assume a less vigorous nature as they are never completely happy due to their roots being confined and too hot in the summer and too cold perhaps in the winter.
