Pinus thunbergii ‘Arakawa Sho’

Arakawa Sho Japanese Black Pine

This is a rough bark form of the Japanese Black Pine. This long-needled pine can be transformed into a craggy looking specimen if you prune it to show off the wonderfully corky bark. This is a specimen originally from Iseli nursery and now happily sited in our arboretum at the nursery. We have now made enough grafts to offer some 2 gal plants this spring.
