Pinus thunbergii 'Gyokoho'

35.00

 A Wabi Sabi favorite, Gyokoho is my most popular regular-barked thunbergii. It's a yatsubusa variety so you can count on six to eight buds at every branch whorl plus dwarf growth habit meaning short internode spaces and shorter needles than the norm. Gyokoho is unmistakable in the appearance of the branch tips and the orange-brown coloration of the bark. Of interest to bonsai artists, this cultivar has a strong affinity for the 6 o'clock bottom branch in whorls which is usually the first one to wither from lack of light on most 2-needle pine. It is such a useful branch to build with and here they are in abundance! Photo #2 depicts the unique way the tip-needles lay-out flat like flower petals at the branch ends revealing the yatsubusa grouping of new buds. Needles are medium to light green in color and measure anywhere from one and a half to three inches in length. Gyokoho is a dwarf upright with a vibrant single trunk. Full sun for a nice compact appearance. In ten years (HxW): 7' x 4'.  Zone 5
