JAPANESE UMBRELLA PINE TREE (SCIADOPITYS VERTICILLATA)
Japanese umbrella trees (Sciadopitys verticillata) are small, strikingly beautiful trees that never fail to draw attention. Called “koya-maki” in Japan, the tree is one of Japan’s five sacred trees. Planting this unusual and lovely tree is something you’ll never regret. The tree’s unique structure makes it a prized ornamental to those who find it beautiful. In Japan, the trees are associated with Buddhism in the Kyoto Prefecture. In Mt. Kiso, Japan, residents set koyamaki branches on the graves of their loved ones in order to lead the spirits back to the land of the living.
