Thunderhead Dwarf Japanese Black Pine
'Thunderhead' Japanese Black Pine is a wonderful compact specimen conifer. Like most pines it is drought tolerant and deer resistant but what sets it apart from other pines is it's tight, dense form and handsome white candles in spring that stand out from the dark green needles. It is a slow to medium grower ranging from 5-10' tall and 5-8' wide but keeps it's dense form over time. This Japanese Black Pine will tolerate drier, sandy soils or moister soil as long as it's well drained and requires full sun. They look striking in trios or as a specimen in a smaller garden. Makes a great pairing with the white bark of birches, or yellow Spirea 'Ogon', or purple Smokebush.
