Dragon Eye Pine

10 Jan

PINUS densiflora ‘Oculus Draconis’ commonly known as Dragon Eye Pine is a unique evergreen accent tree.  I saw this in a demo garden several years ago and was taken with the green needles with yellow bands that grace this rarely seen evergreen.  I have recently  created a space for one in my backyard garden and will put it in this spring.  This evergreen likes full sun and is a slow to moderate grower.   The pricing for this is not unusually high and a good garden center or local landscaper should be able to get this for your garden.   I have placed an order for six of these for the upcoming season, one for me of course!
