Pinus thunbergii 'Ogon' (Golden Japanese Black Pine)

Height: 10-12
Spread: 8-10
Light: Full to part sun. Will be less golden in less sun.
Soil: Amended, moist but well-drained soil.
Description: Evergreen conifer with an upright, spreading habit. Long, green needles are tipped in gold and maintain their color throughout winter. A totally unique specimen! The fine texture and bright, golden highlights really shine when contrasted with larger, darker foliage like Cotinus or Physocarpus. Reaches maturity in 10 years. Tolerant of windy and salty conditions.
