The Japanese Black Pine is distinguished by its striking, “windswept” form accented by gray-black, “plated” bark and lustrous, dark green needles. This iconic Japanese native is tolerant of salt spray and salty soil, which accounts for its abundant presence along the rugged coastlines of Japan, its country of origin.

While the Japanese Black Pine may be difficult to find in most nurseries in the United States, Hanselman Landscape has been tending and shaping a number of these beautiful specimens for installation in gardens in the Northeast.

We would love to bring the unique beauty of the Japanese Black Pine to your garden, too! (Give us a call: 717-653-1273.)
