Like its emblematic cousin of the French Mediterranean regions, the pinus pinea, this Japanese red pine offers a branch that forms a plateau at the top.
This variety nevertheless offers a hardiness superior to pinus pinea, down to -25 ° C for tabuliformis against -12 ° C for pinea.
On the other hand, it grows less quickly which ultimately makes it a perfect subject for bonsai cultivation.
