Discovered by the Russian collector, Dr. Alexander von Bunge in 1831 on the grounds of a Buddhist temple near Beijing, this medium-sized hardy pine emphasizes mesmerizing details throughout the year: artful mottled bark, dapper grassy green needles and an airy picturesque silhouette. The ornamental exfoliating bark peels back to reveal an extraordinary tapestry of silvery white, olive green and pale purple splotches amidst 4 in. long rigid needles, arranged in bundles of 3, and small amber brown cones.
Branching near its base, Lacebark Pine grows slowly into a stylish multitrunked specimen with a broad, sometimes shrubby, spreading form that enjoys sunny well-drained sites. Grows slowly. Medium Band.
Size: 20' 0" – 45' 0" high x 20' 0" – 35' 0" wide.
Hardy to zone 4.
