Pine (Japanese White 'Koku Ho')

Pinus parviflora 'Koku Ho'

Pinus parviflora 'Kokuho' is an irregular globose selection of Japanese White Pine with dense, uniform branching and soft, pale-green needles that grow with a slight twist and measure around 1 inch (2.5 cm) long. Foliar buds have a reddish cast that attractively accents the needles in winter and spring. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 3 feet (1 m) tall and wide with an annual growth rate of 2 to 3 inches (5 - 7.5 cm).

This cultivar originated long ago in Japan and was described in international Bonsai periodicals from the mid-1970s onward. In the Japanese language Kokuho (国保) loosely translates into National Treasure.
