Design Ideas This is an excellent small Pine for use in spatially challenged landscapes or where windy conditions take their toll on taller species. Multiple trunks and irregular growth make this an ideal coastal Pine. Great for view lots where trees won't block the vista. Makes a fine specimen in the Asian garden and in Mediterranean schemes, woodland and Northern-style country gardens. The attractive bark is a welcome source of color in low-maintenance courtyards and those filled with dryland plants. Particularly good choice with landscape boulders and dry streambeds.
Foliage Color Blue-green
Companion Plants Switch Grass (Panicum); False Cypress (Chamaecyparis); Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia); Russian Sage (Perovskia); Coneflower (Echinacea)
CARE
Care Provide enriched, loamy, well-drained soil. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Prune as needed to maintain topiary size and shape.
