It is a popular variety of Pinus parviflora and is also known as five-needle pine, white pine or "goya-matsu" in Japan. In nature, it reaches the height of 25-30 meters and represents the most used conifer to make bonsai. It has an erect and tortuous trunk, with thick, well-branched and pyramid-shaped foliage, and blue-green needles that join together in groups of 5 units (from which the plant got its name). There is also a subspecies with shorter and thinner green needles called "Kokonoe". The plant loves sunny and well-ventilated places and fears neither hot nor cold weathers, even though in case of freezing conditions it is better to cover the plant with TNT. It requires regular watering, especially if kept outdoor, but water stagnation should be avoided. This is a long-lived plant passed down from generation to generation in the countries of origin, which becomes more and more beautiful over time. Inside the National Arboretum of Washington DC is kept a 390 year old specimen: the white pine was donated to the United States in 1975 by Masaru Yamaki, a bonsai master, for the bicentenary celebrations of the founding of the US.
