This unusual form of the "Japanese White Pine" has strong creamy-gold banding on the new growth.
The colour slowly changes to the typical blue-grey colour in autumn and winter.
It is a slow grower, eventually forming a broad upright and spreading habit.
It could reach at least one metre in the first 10 years.
It is best when grown in an open, sunny position.
It can be used as a very attractive pot plant.
