(Austrian Black Pine, Dwarf Austrian Black Pine)

Austrian pine is an evergreen conifer from central and southeastern Europe. Its dwarf cultivar 'Black Prince' is a small rounded shrub with rich green needles and silvery buds and shoots. It may be a hybrid with Japanese black pine, Pinus thunbergii.

The long, stiff, medium- to dark green needles occur in bundles of two. They crowd the short, up-swept, somewhat irregular branches. The winter buds and new spring growth are silver gray, in striking contrast with the foliage. This cultivar...

(Austrian Pine, Oregon Green Austrian Pine)

Austrian black pine is a ubiquitous large evergreen tree native to southeastern Europe. Pyramidal when young, it eventually forms a high-crowned, broad-headed tree. The needles are long and stiff; the bark is dark brown and platy. In spring, tiny male cones and larger female cones appear on new growth. The conical, yellowish brown female cones shed their seeds their second autumn, but sometimes remain on the branches 1 to 2 years longer.

Tolerant of urban and seaside conditions, this oft-planted...

(Longleaf Pine)

Once forming large stands in sandy soils in the Southeast United States, this tall evergreen tree is now relatively scarce in the wild because of fire suppression. The long, soft, light needles of this pine occur in bundles of three toward the tips of horizontal to ascending branches that terminate in large silvery-white buds. The needles sometimes droop. In spring, tiny male cones and large pendent female cones appear near the branch tips. The conical, brown female cones mature their second year,...

(Five-needle Pine, Japanese White Pine)

Widely cultivated in its native Japan, this picturesque small to medium-sized pine is perhaps best known by its many dwarf cultivars.

Most cultivated forms of this hardy evergreen bear relatively short bluish-green needles in dense shaggy tufts. The supple, slightly twisted needles are held in bundles of five. In spring, trees produce tiny male cones and larger (but relatively small) female cones near the branch tips. The gray to reddish brown, erect or outspread female cones persist for...

(Adcock's Dwarf Pine)

One of many dwarf cultivars of Japanese pine, 'Adcock's Dwarf' is a globular to conical, small to medium-sized shrub with up-angled branches.

This hardy conifer bears short bluish-green needles in dense shaggy tufts. The supple, slightly twisted needles are held in bundles of five. In spring, trees produce tiny male cones and larger (but relatively small) female cones near the branch tips. The gray to reddish brown, erect or outspread female cones persist for several years.

This extremely...

Distinguished from other cultivars of Japanese pine by its relatively short blue-green needles, this small evergreen tree is sometimes confused with Pinus parviflora 'Brevifolia'.

This hardy conifer bears bluish-green needles in dense shaggy tufts. The slightly twisted needles occur in bundles of five. In spring, trees produce tiny male cones and larger (but relatively small) female cones near the branch tips. The gray to reddish brown female cones persist for several years.

(Balkan Pine, Macedonian Pine)

This dense, narrow, medium to tall evergreen tree from the Balkan Peninsula is prized by gardeners for its symmetrical habit and formal bearing.

The long, semi-rigid, deep blue-green needles of this pine occur in bundles of five. They densely clothe the short, ascending, closely spaced branches. In spring, trees produce tiny male cones and large cylindrical female cones near the branch tips. The solitary or clustered, dangling female cones are sheathed with fleshy, resinous green scales...

(Dwarf Siberian Pine, Japanese Stone Pine)

This low, spreading, little-known evergreen from East Asia is as handsome as the popular Mugho pine (Pinus mugo), but less trouble-prone.

The long, rigid, dark blue-green needles of this shrubby pine occur in bundles of five. They densely clothe the ascending to prostrate branches. In spring, plants produce clusters of tiny male cones and egg-shaped female cones near the branch tips. The erect cones are sheathed with fleshy, resinous green scales that turn woody and brown (or purple)...
