Pinus bungeana is one of the most special of pine trees. Lacebark Pine derives its name from the patterned green, tan and brown bark on the trunk and branches. Plant has dark green 3in long needles that radiate outwards. They are stiff but unusually soft to the touch at the same time. This is an excellent substitute for Eastern White Pine, Norway Spruce and Blue Spruce. Looks great with 'French Lace' Weigela, 'Tamukeyama' Japanese Maples and Creeping Blue Spruce. Add some Miscanthus grass and a couple of boulders and you will have a stunning original display. Patterned bark comes with maturity when trunk and/or branches get to be 2in in diameter.
