Sciadophytis verticillata--Japanese Umbrella Pine

List of files and visuals associated with this text.

This small pine is used for its unusual texture and growth habit. On young plants the branches stick straight out but become more pendulous with age. The effect is much like the ribs on an umbrella. The tree will grow about 25 feet tall and spread about 20 feet. The orange, peeling bark is ornamental but usually hidden by the foliage. Provide a moist acidic soil and protection from the wind.
