Pinus thunbergii var. corticosa 'Yamaki'

90.00

  A superb nishiki pine for the landscape and bonsai collection. I was fortunate to acquire four young Yamaki in the late 80s from a bonsai grower in Sacramento. They were growing on their own roots which really got my attention! The grey cork bark is rugged and persistent with reddish-brown fissures early on which later turn almost black on both trunk and branching. Yamaki sports tri-wing bark on all parts of the tree. The branching with short internodes spaces is semi-yatsubusa in structure with five small side shoots plus the large terminal one showing at most vigorous branch tips. The needles are a medium green with lengths anywhere from 3-4" which will reduce in size when building with the smaller candles. The first picture illustrates a nine and ten year old tree section. The second photo shows Yamaki's upright growth habit. Full sun for this one too if you want great bark! In 10 years 6'H x 4'W.  Zone 5  More 1 Gal for fall 2018.
