Pinus densiflora 'Umbraculifera'

Title Image

Tanyosho pine

 
FAMILY Pinaceae (Pine Family)
RANGE Japan
HABIT Tree | Shrub
LANDSCAPE USES Often considered one of the most beautiful of all pines, this cultivated form of Japanese red pine is multi-trunked with a rounded, umbrella-like crown. Trunk and branches have unique, orange to orange-red bark which peels into thin, papery flakes. Evergreen needles are soft and slender, 3 to 5 inches long, bright to dark green with 2 needles to each bundle. This combination of distinctive form, handsome needles, and stunning bark makes Tanyosho pine a dramatic addition to any landscape. Young plants are much sought after and may be seen as focal points in Japanese-style gardens. Over time, trees may reach up to 25 feet tall. Like the straight species, which is taller and more upright, Tanyosho pines grow best in slightly acidic, well-drained soil, in full sun.

The famous grove of Tanyosho pines in the New York Botanical Garden's Ross Conifer Arboretum was planted in 1908 as small, rounded plants. Now in maturity, their orange-red bark and rounded crowns are a breath-taking sight especially on a snowy afternoon with winter sun glowing on their trunks.
