Conifer Slope

This magnificent collection of pines and their relatives was chosen for their attractive habits and colorful foliage. Mature Norway spruces, most likely planted a century ago, create a backdrop for a tapestry of blue, green, gray and gold foliage.

Just a taste of what's blooming at Wave Hill

Japanese Red Pine

Japanese Red Pine (Pinus densiflora 'Umbraculifera')

This strongly sculptural form of the Japanese red pine has no equal. 'Umbraculifera' has a densely branched habit that brings to mind the appearance of an opened umbrella. The bark of the trunk and older branches is a beautiful orange-red.
