STYLE
Landscape Use Hillside
Design Ideas Excellent as a specimen conifer. This selection tends to grow more upright and narrow, so it is suitable for smaller gardens. Plant where a verticle accent and some spring color is needed. The foliage will be green by the end of summer, making a nice backdrop for plants with attractive fall color.
Foliage Color Multicolored
Companion Plants Japanese Maple (Acer); Winterberry (Ilex); Switch Grass (Panicum); Dogwood (Cornus); Barberry (Berberis)
CARE
Care Performs best in well-draining, slightly acidic soil, but is highly adaptable and can grow in wet, boggy conditions. Do not amend the soil when planting. Water deeply, weekly during the first growing season; once establish, reduce frequency. Fertilize during the first year with a slow release fertilizer designed for pine trees.
