Japanese Black Pine are one of the most recognized pine trees for bonsai. Sending several flushes of growth per year, thick rough bark, and adaptability to our climate make this a perfect choice for a bonsai specimen. They can also be grown in the ground but grow slower and don’t reach heights of 40 to 50 feet like they do in other climates.
