Pine trees are superb trees which grow in a wide climate scale - from cold northern countries to hot coastal sites. They are probably most beautiful in their natural environment.

If you like Mediterranean umbrella pines but feel sorry that it is too tender for our climate try to have a look at this selection of dwarf Japanese red pine. It is called Alice Verkade and has bright green, soft needles. It is a slow growing plant making only about 7-10 cm per year, forming a beautiful, dense, rounded head which can create a typical Mediterranean atmosphere when older.

Pine trees hate wet soils. They do best in full sun and well-drained soils that is kept moist until establishment. Fully hardy to approx. -29°C (USDA zone 5).
