The Japanese White Pine is maybe the most elegant of all pines. The feminine light needles set up against the rough bark is as beautiful as only nature can create it.
Autumn is here in a moment, and the weather can change every day from being cool one day and acting as a summers day the next around here.
Japanese white pines dislike being wet, so if you live in an area where autumn services you with a lot of rain, then be careful bringing your White pines under a shelter.
They prefer being on the dry side rather than being wet. And autumn time with cooler weather can be a challenge for a Japanese white pine in a pot.
