Tanyosho pine is especially beautiful in the winter as snow highlights its unique form and contrast nicely with the ornamental bark. Notice the color variation between these two tanyosho pines. It is common for the winter foliage to vary in color from the normal light green to yellow green. However, these tanyosho pines planted at The Morton Arboretum show a degree of this color variation throughout the year probably due to typical genetic diversity within a species.
