Lacebark Pine
Pinus bungeana

Discovered by the Russian collector, Dr. Alexander von Bunge in 1831 on the grounds of a Buddhist temple near Beijing, this medium-sized hardy pine emphasizes mesmerizing details throughout the year: artful mottled bark, dapper grassy green needles and an airy picturesque silhouette. The ornamental exfoliating bark peels back to reveal an extraordinary tapestry of silvery white, olive green and pale purple splotches amidst 4 in. long rigid needles, arranged in bundles of 3, and small amber brown cones.

Branching near its base, Lacebark Pine grows slowly into a stylish multitrunked specimen with a broad, sometimes shrubby, spreading form that enjoys sunny well-drained sites. Grows slowly. Medium Band.

Size: 20'–45' high x 20'–35' wide; hardy to zone 4.

Mikawa Japanese Black Pine
Pinus thunbergii var. Mikawa

Championed by artists and bonsai aficionados for centuries, this distinctive Pine spotlights pairs of nearly white new growth, thick rigid needles, corky purplish black bark, and stout twisting horizontal branches that can sustain just about any amount of pruning or trimming. Mikawa’s rugged naturally dwarfed trunk crafts an exquisite bonsai specimen, while acquiescing to con-tainer culture, salt spray and poor sandy soil. Grows very slowly.

Medium Band.

Size: 5' high x 2' wide; hardy to zone 5.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
