Not really a pine at all, this is the only species within its genus. A unique and interesting plant of pyramidal shape. The name comes from leaves that look like pine needles whorled around the stems like the ribs of an umbrella. Very slow growing. At a young age it could be used as a dwarf. It eventually grows 6-12" a year to make an attractive specimen of medium conical size. Does not tolerate lime soil conditions. This unusual plant is one of the most sought after that has come from Japan. We are sure you will want this terrific specimen; it will be one of your most prized possessions. Will eventually reach heights of 60' or more.

Like umbrella ribs, whorls of thick, dark-green "leaves" radiate from the stem, giving a tufted look to this unusual, symmetrical tree. Sun-PSh/Med

Slow growing conifer (maybe 6 inches per year) with wide green shiny needles. It is always great to see an older specimen of Umbrella Pine.
