We rely on pines (Pinus spp. and cvs., USDA Hardiness Zones 3-10) for their beautiful evergreen presence in winter, but lacebark pine (Pinus bungeana, Zones 4-7) also has stunning bark to kick it up a notch. Lacebark pine is native to China and prefers well-drained soil in full sun. It grows up to 50 feet tall and 20 feet wide. This photo was taken at the Denver Botanic Gardens in Colorado.
