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' 0"–45' 0" high x 20' 0"–35' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.

Pinus thunbergii var. Mikawa  full sun
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' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
