A slower growing selection that will maintain a uniform and densely branched upright form; silvery blue-green needles appear bright making this an impressive selection as an accent tree

Landscape Attributes:

Blue Angel Japanese White Pine is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

This is a high maintenance shrub that will require regular care and upkeep. When pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new growth of the current season, other than to remove any dieback. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Blue Angel Japanese White Pine is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • Vertical Accent
  • Hedges/Screening
  • General Garden Use

Plant Characteristics:

Blue Angel Japanese White Pine will grow to be about 8 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 4 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 80 years or more.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers dry to average moisture levels with very well-drained soil, and will often die in standing water.  It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution.

This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
