|Is there a type of pine tree that grows in sandy soil, shade and has a somewhat contained root system? I want to plant it near our house, and don't want the roots the interfere with the house foundation.
|Most pines become huge with age (60-100'), so I'm concerned that you might be planting too close to the foundation of your house. The smallest pine is a Mugo Pine and makes a lovely focal point in a garden. Lacebark Pine (Pinus bungeana).The lacebark pine is a small to medium sized tree. As the tree matures the smooth bark begins to flake away, creating a beautiful patchwork of numerous colors. This pine typically branches near the ground making it an excellent landscape specimen plant.|
