Pinus thunbergii ‘Yatsubusa’

Pinus thunbergii 'Yatsubusa'

This dwarf form of the Japanese Black Pine forms a broad somewhat flat topped small tree. It prefers full sun and once established it is drought tolerant. This particular tree was grafted here at the nursery and grown in the field for about 3 years then ‘harvested’ last winter and re-established in a 20 gal pot. This tree could make a focal point for a garden as the relaltively long needles and fresh green color and the compact habit of the tree all contribute to its beauty.
