The Japanese White Pine or Goyomatsu is a mountainous species of five-needle pine from Japan that is famous for its compact, cloud-like foliage. It is a single-flush pine which allows growers to cut the candles back to a desired length every seen. The Japanese White Pine can withstand brutal winter conditions, lending well to northern growers. They are a slower-growing species than their lowland counterparts. Grown from seed at Kaede Bonsai-en, these trees are well established in 2 1/4" containers.

Common Name(s): Japanese White Pine, Goyomatsu

Latin Name: Pinus parviflora

Type: Evergreen Conifer

Native to: Japan and Korea

Climate: Hardy in Zones 4-7, the Japanese White Pine does best in cold climates. It will require several weeks of sub-freezing temperatures per year to survive long term. We keep them outside on a bench over the winter with very little protection.

Care: The Japanese White Pine does not like wet feet. Do not let it dry out completely, but make sure that it has well-draining soil so that it can receive adequate oxygen to the roots.

Size: 2-4"

Notes: This is a pine and the soil is likely to contain mycorrhizae, a beneficial fungus that has a symbiotic relationship with pines. This is a white fungus that occupies the soil that some may mistake for mold or other harmful fungi. Do not fret if you find mycorrhizae in your soil, it is a great sign of soil health!
