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.

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.

I've planted several of these in some mighty tough locations, day long full sun, sandy soil, and they're all doing well. They're round puffy balls currently, looking forward to seeing them as flat tops.
