Product Description

Japanese red pine is widely used as a bonsai tree. If left to grow naturally, it reaches 30 to 50 feet tall. A truly classic and beautiful tree for bonsai.

A distinguishing feature of this tree is the often crooked or sweeping trunk which shows reddish-orange peeling bark; very showy trunk. The tree wants to grow with several trunks but can be trained to grow with a single trunk. It has soft bendable branches that tend to sweep upward. Needs little pruning to develop a strong structure.

A cone-like evergreen tree with broad irregular head. In Japan it is thought of as 'feminine' because of the soft informal appearance. Soft bright blue green or yellow green needles are arranged in pairs and remain on the tree for about three years.

Hardiness zones 3-7, (-37°C/-35°F, -15°C/-5°F) in Winter. Grow in fertile well-drained soil. Keep a bit on the dry side; increase sand for drainage in soil mix. The tree can tolerate drought. Grows best in semi-shade to full indirect light. Doesn’t like extreme heat; give afternoon shade.

Additional Information

Germination

First, scarify the seeds. For faster germination, soak the seeds in slightly hot water for 24-48 hours, followed by 4-6 weeks cold stratification before sowing at 1/4" deep in sterile gardening soil. Keep damp soil, not soaking wet. Keep pot in warm situation, 68-75°F. Germination usually occurs several months. It can be more depending on their degree of unbroken dormancy, don't give up.

Scarification / Stratification

Seed coats may be so hard that they are impermeable to water. They need to be scratched or broken using a knife or sandpaper, in order to germinate. Chip the seeds with a sharp knife or make a few swipes with a sharp edged file or use sandpaper to allow moisture being more readily absorbed.
