Japanese White Pine Spotted - April 2022
There I was, wandering around the parking lot nursery at my local big box store when I saw it staring at me. It was pulled off the pallet and was standing proud - almost as if another shopper was intrigued by it, pulled it out to get a better look and then abandoned it. What am I talking about? This beauty below - a Japanese White Pine - Pinus Parviflora Nana.
How does that make me feel? Like this:
Why? Because, I hemmed-and-hawed about this tree last year and FINALLY bought one when it dropped to 50% off. I babied it. And what happened? It is dead. All brown dead.
The lure of this is strong, but I need to learn from my mistakes: I'm not certain that this tree works for me, my garden and my zone. But, do I really know? Or, does it take two trees to be sure?? There's REALLY only one way to find out, right?
