Pinus bungeana full sun

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.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

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