Pinus thunbergii var. corticosa 'Ondae #1'

from 45.00

Ondae #1 is the earliest corking black pine I grow and train for bonsai. The changing bark is apparent at the end of the third grow season and gets way better from there. It's an outstanding variety with an easily recognizable bark pattern.The River Water cork bark appears longitudinally along trunks and branches with reddish/brown fissuring. Ondae #1 is of the three winged type pattern. In time they will grow out from the trunk surface to nearly 2" in height. The needles are typical Thunbergii at 4" in length and reduce down to half or one-quarter size easily depending on which of the smaller candles are chosen to build with. Ondae #1 possesses lots of horizontal tendencies so slant and cascade styles are obtainable with little effort. It's a one of a kind Nishiki black for sure!
