Compact Tanyosho Japanese Red Pine
Pinus densiflora 'Umbraculifera Compacta'
|Description||A very attractive, small tree that naturally develops a flat-topped, umbrella-like silhouette. Features red brown bark and dense, bright green needles. A low maintenance focal point that will add visual interest and texture to the landscape. The compact form is ideal for smaller areas. Evergreen.|
|Watering||Water when top 2 inches of soil is dry.|
|Blooms||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Mature Size||Slow growing; reaches 12 ft. tall, 18 ft. wide.|
|Landscape Use||Container, Suitable for Topiary|
|Design Ideas||This Pine is the perfect size for courtyards that need a low-maintenance focal point. Also does well in windswept coastal conditions. Multiple trunks and irregular growth is great for view lots that need visual relief without sacrificing the panorama. This beauty is gorgeous silhouetted by the rising or setting sun. Makes a fine specimen in the Asian garden or in Mediterranean schemes. Particularly attractive with landscape boulders and dry streambeds.|
|Companion Plants||Japanese Maple (Acer); Rhododendron (Rhododendron); Lily of the Valley Shrub (Pieris); Winter Daphne (Daphne); Astilbe (Astilbe)|
|Care||Grows best in slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in the first few growing seasons to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune semi-annually to maintain shape and structure.|
