Pinus bungeana - Lacebark Pine
Rare in the wild but planted for centuries in China near temples, the Lacebark Pine is so named in allusion to its most striking feature—the bark on mature specimens flakes, revealing patches of green, gray, and chalky white. Slow growing, it remains bushy and may be multistemmed, reaching 15 feet in 20 years, taller with great age. One of the loveliest of all Pines. All Pines require full sun and excellent drainage to prosper. Z. 5-8

Pinus bungeana 'Diamant' - Miniature Lacebark Pine
This rare super-dwarf version is low growing and somewhat speading, reaching only a foot after 10 years! It can spread 2-3 feet. This fascinating curiosity for the rock garden was originally discovered as a "witch's broom" in Hungary. Z. 5-8
Pinus bungeana 'Silver Ghost' - Lacebark Pine
Loose-growing, open needles allow the unique light colored, silvery bark to be viewed to perfection as the tree matures. Intricate patterns of silver and taupe on the mother plant look like nature's version of a jigsaw puzzle. 'Silver Ghost' is a selection from the Dawes Arboretum in Ohio. Z. 5-8
