Sciadopitys verticillata, is not actually a pine. It is more closely related to Bald Cypress, Dawn Redwood, and Giant Sequoia than pine and looks uniquely different from any other conifer. We have spent years collecting and growing more than 60 different forms from 'Ruslyn's Golden Parasol' with it's bright golden foliage to 'Picola', a miniature globe form with short dark-green needles. Many of these choice specimens are available with more being developed. These gems are rarely found in landscapes even more rarely found available in nurseries and garden centers. We are pleased to be able to offer them in such a great diversity.
This glorious conifer constitutes the sole member of both its genus and plant family. It is without a peer in its beauty; on a mature specimen, its rich needles compose a sculpture of form, texture, and color that is unrivaled. The foliage develops a bronzy tint in winter. While it often grows to 30 feet in cultivation and 90 feet in the wild, its slow-growing nature inspires patience. Named for the whorls of shiny, deep-green foliage encircling its branches like the ribs of an umbrella, this evergreen stands out in any crowd.
Grow in average, moist but well-drained soil in full sun with some shade at midday, or partial shade.
Goes well with Dwarf Korean Fir, Dragon Eye Pine, Vanderwolf Pyramid Pine as well as Pinus parviflora 'Glauca'. Check out our store for these great plants!
