Pinus thunbergii oculis draconis - size
Last year I bought a 5' tall "dragon's eye" Japanese black pine (P. thunbergii) at a local nursery of good repute. I really like it.
However I'm a bit worried that it will get too large for the space. The information on the tag said that it was a compact, slow grower to a moderate 20'-30'. However online there is sparse and conflicting information, some of which says it will grow as fast as the standard P. thunbergii. I've got a small lot, so my space probably can't handle a fast grower. As a related question, how feasible might it be to keep it to 15' with some careful pruning?
In the end I need to decide if I can keep this or if I should find another home for it.
