A native of Japan, the Japanese red pine is an evergreen conifer. It may grow up to 100 feet tall in the wild, but in landscapes, it usually stays between 30 and 50 feet tall. It has dark green needles that grow in tufts from the branches. Male blooms are yellow in the spring, while female flowers are yellow to purple. These blooms are followed by long, drab brown cones. The tree's name comes from the way its bark peels away in scales to expose a bright crimson beneath. The main trunk's bark fades to brown or grey as the tree becomes older. They don't require much trimming and can withstand mild drought.
