Japanese Tempelhof White Pine
This is the more expensive of the two trees. The tag says it has a moderate rate of growth which means that it will take 20 years to reach its mature height of 25 feet. I bought it because I fell in love with its needles that are green on top and white on the underside, creating a blue cast which I think will look attractive against the grey house. The tag also says it pairs nicely with rhodies which is what I want to plant close to the fence behind it and slightly to the left.
