Gardeners' Notes:

Positive rkwright85 On Jul 28, 2014, rkwright85 from Horton, MI (Zone 5b) wrote:

I consider this the best larger variety of Japanese Umbrella Pine available because the branches don't break as easily under snow and ice. This variety also holds its color well during winter. It's also nice to have a narrow variety that fits into smaller gardens but is still large enough to be seen.
