Pinus Parviflora ‘Fukai Seedling’ (Japanese White Pine)
This is a slow growing upright form. Please contact us for stock availability and sizes.
Hardiness level Green
This is a slow growing upright form. The new spring foliage is a creamy golden colour which by the autumn matures to a glaucous green. It can bear cones that remain on the tree for several years.
Best in full sun in any aspect. Happy in any well drained clay, sand or loamy soil. If it does require pruning, as with any pine, prune in the winter to avoid resin ooze.
N.B. When clipping several plants with the same tool, have a bucket containing a 5% bleach solution and swish your blades around for 30 seconds between plants to sterilise them. This will help avoid the chance of cross contamination of disease.
As with all woody plants, plant high, exposing as much of the taper at the base of the trunk as possible. Allowing soil to accumulate round the base of a tree can be fatal. Keep very well watered when first planted.
