Sciadopitys verticillata 'Picola' / Picola Japanese umbrella pine
Sciadopitys verticillata'Picola' is a dwarf, conical selection of Japanese umbrella pine with short, 2-inch (5 cm) long, shiny, dark-green needles. Because of its short branching, 'Picola' will maintain an attractive dense appearance, a plus for smaller gardens. After 10 years years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 30 inches (80 cm) tall and 15 inches (35 cm) wide, suggested an annual rate of growth of 2.5 inches (8 cm).
Looking to order a dwarf (Picola) Japanese umbrella pine here on Long Island. Can't find anywhere. Not even online. Nurseries and even Home Depot have the bigger mature umbrella pines. Any tips on where to order are greatly appreciated.
I found this umbrella pine at O’Brien Nurserymen in Granby, CT this past weekend… and of course, bought one. They do not do mail order, but it is well worth the trip to visit. Open most weekends thru the growing season… great selection of plants and display gardens
