One of the more cultivar heavy species, and for good reason, the Japanese white pine is loaded with features that gardeners everywhere desire. Slow growing, artistic forms, wonderful blue/gree/silvery needles, lots of small cones(at an early age), Pinus parviflora is one of my personal favorites and one I can seldom pass on a new cultivar. Here's a handful new to me and below a link to last year's enormous photo gallery.

Pinus parviflora 'Pygmy Yatsubusa'. Very slow growing, this plant is about five years old.
Photobucket

'Regenhold'. Nice cones and very unusual look, this small dwarf is about 3-4 years old.
Photobucket

'Mini Curls'. A newer plant, purchased from Coenosium Gardens, this miniature plant has unique ruffled, furled needles. Note the understock has been left on for the time being.
Photobucket

'Ibo-Can'. I believe discovered by Joe Burke, but I'd need more info. A nice medium sized pine, with dark blue needles.
Photobucket

Share some of yours.

Adding a few more though I feel a bit like a drunk guy at a bar dancing with himself.

'Ara-kawa'. Noted for it's bark later in it's life. Potted now three years.

'Hillier'. Seems very slow in my garden. Third year I think.

'Aoi'. My younger specimen.

'Fukai'. Normally variegated, mine hasn't shown much, probably due to the lack of sunshine this year.

Nice stuff, Will. Thanks for posting some more.
The plant you call 'Hillier' has a tag that says 'Bonnie Bergman'. Which is correct?

Sorry about that, thanks for correcting me. Here is the correct plant photo:

'Hillier'. Very slow so far.

Hi all!
Nice pics! Sorry Will but 'Ibocan' (write in one word i think) also spell 'Ibocan-Goyo' in Japan is an old cultivar well know in the Bonsai nurseryman world.
His interest is for the bark, with old age he make nice cork bark!
Similar than 'Arakawa' but not the same.

That 'Ogon' is something special.


 o
RE: Pinus parviflora gallery 2011

Sorry Julien, you are 100% correct, the plant originated from Japan. From Bob Fincham I learned that Joe Burke helped bring it to the US and began to propogate it heavily here. Thanks for the correction.

-Will


 o
RE: Pinus parviflora gallery 2011

Julien is only 50% correct, it's 'Ibocan', the goyo part will not be used any longer as it means Pinus parviflora in the Japanese language.

Some other misspellings:
'Blue Angel'
Must be written as 'Blauer Engel' which is German for 'Blue Angel'.

'Ogon Janome'
Must be written as 'Ogon-janome'.

'Tanima no Yuki'
Must be written as 'Tanima-no-yuki'

'Goldilocks' is renamed in Tenezu-kasu' as this was the first Japanese name given to this plant.

'Hime Goyo matsu'
The Japanese write it as 'Hime-goyo-matsu' but this cultivar is the same as Pinus parviflora 'Nana'.

Pinus parviflora var. pentaphylla 'Kanrico'
Must be written as Pinus parviflora 'Kanrico'.
var. pentaphylla was used in the past but now it's not distinguisted within the species.

'Gyoko sho hime'
Must be written as 'Gyoku-sho-hime'

'Aizu-goyo'
Must be written as 'Aizu' without the goyo part.

'Ko-ru'
Must be written as 'Koru'

I hope I helped you with this info...

Nater,

Glad you got the Myo-joe to knit. I lost my plant this summer so after 3-4 years, I'll ask for a scion from you!! It's always nice to know a trade can be a returned welcome to (a) garden.

Cheers,

Dax

P.s. Curious, did you graft to monophylla?

And this last one I need a little help with, since it was labelled as Pinus parviflora. May just be the species, but it does look quite blue, maybe 'Glauca'? (Is that a legitmate cultivar?) Any thoughts?

RE: Pinus parviflora gallery 2011

I can't say for sure, and my novice guess would be a species plant.

'Glauca Brevifolia'

Nice pics!

Could you please explain what you mean on your Miyajima? "Needs one more year to overcome my candling lapse of a couple of years ago"

I have a couple that look like that and curious what you may have done wrong or right in this case. Appreciate it.


 o
RE: Pinus parviflora gallery 2011

Jim, your plants are *amazing*. It's one thing that they are rare and choice conifers but your pruning and upkeep methods are flawless. I too, would love to know what you do to your pines! :)

Thanks for sharing,

-Will


 o
RE: Pinus parviflora gallery 2011

With the parvifloras I usually candle prune for size and shape. I am certainly learning as I am going and in the case of the Miyajima I let the candle that creates the central leader go a couple of years ago, because I wanted more height. unfortunately when you do that with a medium grower you get a 8" - 12" candle that creates a long bare area of trunk not concealed by needles. I prefer a tight form as opposed to the open kind of leggy look some of these pines would have if not pruned (for example, ogon-janome)I do this also due to the fact that I have a limited amount of space. So with the Miyajima I have a neck with a head on top, that I could just cut off, but instead I am trying to be patient and am letting some of the candles below the bare area be a little longer each year to cover up the bare spot. One thing to keep in mind is that when these trees get tighter they are more prone to fungus and need more attention to cleaning out dead needles. I learned that lesson the hard way when I lost a very old Azuma this year that I had been working on for several years and was very dense. But hey, it's as much about the journey as the result, right?


 o
RE: Pinus parviflora gallery 2011

Hey, Jim.
Excellent pictures and great forms you've created.
Your 'Goldilocks' is spelled correctly. However, you should keep the original Japanese name that was given to this cultivar: 'Tenysu-kazu'
