|Design Ideas||A beautiful formal pine for evergreen conifer gardens designed for winter beauty. Excellent choice for smaller spaces between overly-close buildings. Sized for planting areas around front lawns of city or suburban homes. Excellent specimen for Christmas outdoor lighting. Makes a good foundation plant to soften rigid building edges or corners where fences connect. Super focal point used against darker backgrounds for close or long range view. Integrate into shrub border for more variety of form in every season.|
