Genus Pinus is the largest group of conifers in the world, one hundred and thirteen species all evergreen trees or shrubs. It is almost an entirely northern hemisphere genus. There is no fossil record in the southern hemisphere and only one species just crosses the equator in northern Sumatra. Pinus species have attractive bark, developing an irregular outline with age and bearing long needle-like leaves in bundles of two, three or five; conspicuous cones may fall or remain on the tree for years.
Details Hand grafted and propagated at Lime Cross Nursery Pinus parviflora 'Tenysu-kazu' (Dr Landis) also known as Goldilocks and Dr Landis Gold is a slow-growing, irregular upright selection of Japanese White pine with bright mango-yellow new growth in the spring. It needles grow with a slight twist which reveal silvery undertones. As summer turns to fall, the needle colour fades to blue-green with yellow overtones. It is truly a striking plant.
