The Kotobuki Japanese Black Pine is an ancient form of pine which originated in Japan centuries ago. For a small Asian or Japanese garden, it is an unequalled selection. As a unique vertical accent with loads of character, it is perfect for any garden. It grows steadily into an upright, irregular column, reaching 4 or 5 feet tall in about 10 years. It dark needles give it a somber, stylish look, and they contrast beautifully with the bright silver-white of the new shoots each spring. It grows upright, but in time the branches develop into irregular side clusters, giving it a very ‘Asian’ look. It is also ideal for a special container plant – a pair on either side of a doorway for example – and it makes a unique bonsai tree too.

  • Rare vertical form of this iconic pine tree
  • Forms an upright, irregular small tree
  • Spring shoots are a dramatic silver-white color
  • Resistant to heat, drought, salt and deer
  • Unique plant for Asian-themed gardens

Plant your Kotobuki Japanese Black Pine in a sunny place, in any well-drained soil. It thrives in hot, dry conditions once established, but also in moister, richer soils too. It tolerates poor soil perfectly, and it is ideal for seashore planting. Even deer usually leave it alone, and it has no pests or diseases of consequence. It is hardy from zone 5 to zone 9, so it grows well in almost all parts of the country. For a unique specimen, and a real conversation piece, this tree cannot be beaten.
