Amazing what can get posted on the INTERNET.  I never knew that Pinus Parviflora was native to North America.  Of course that may not be what he trying to say in this articlle, he may be saying that the trees are cultivated in North America. However; you have to stand by what you write unless you take the time to correct it.  Never the less there was time spent on the site that should have included accuracy.  There is a cultivar of JWP; Adcox Dwarf, that grows into a shruby plant and there is the Pumila Pine Yoshimura wrote about that you do not see often if at all, that one grows as a low growing plant.

Hello Mr Wood,

tell me how well does Adcock's dwarf work for bonsai ? maybe they do not use them so often due to it's slow growth rate?
I've managed to get a Japanese white pine, imported from china, through my summer alive and even managed to get it to back-bud on old bare thick branches. It's obviously a graft as I don't think white pine on it's own roots will survive the heat here.

I agree though, it seems that the language barrier was hard for that individual  to overcome.

kind regards
Herman
