Pinus densiflora 'Alice Verkade' is a cultivar of Japanese red pine that is prized for its striking appearance and manageable size. It is a slow-growing evergreen tree with a dense, pyramidal form, reaching a height of 10 to 15 feet and a spread of 6 to 10 feet at maturity.

The needles of 'Alice Verkade' are a vibrant green color and grow in bundles of two, measuring around 3 to 5 inches in length. The tree produces small, egg-shaped cones that are about 1 inch in length, which add to its ornamental value.

One of the distinctive features of this cultivar is its bark, which is a rich, reddish-brown color and has a rough, deeply furrowed texture. As the tree matures, the bark becomes more rugged and adds to the tree's character.

' Alice Verkade' is a low-maintenance tree that is drought-tolerant and adaptable to a wide range of soil conditions. It is an excellent choice for small gardens or as a focal point in a landscape design. Its compact size also makes it ideal for planting in containers, where it can be used as a decorative accent on patios or balconies.

Overall, Pinus densiflora 'Alice Verkade' is a beautiful and easy-to-grow cultivar that is sure to add interest and texture to any garden or landscape.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
