Miniature and dwarf conifers can serve as versatile plants whether you have a small
or large perennial garden. You can use these small conifers as anchors of everchanging plant varieties such as vertical
clematis in a design and in clusters with other dwarf or miniature conifers. Compact conifers as anchor plants provide
attractive stability in a bed or border as bulbs, perennials and annuals come and go. Conifers with all types of contours
from low mounds to pyramids can be used in this way.
A common challenge that gardeners face is finding plants that add height without taking up a lot of space.
A miniature or dwarf conifer with either a vertical narrow habit or a pyramidical form can lend height to a combination and
serve as a focal point or add depth to a small or narrow bed. In addition to enhancing mixed plantings, small conifers
can be grouped with other plants to add year-round color, form and texture to your gardens.
The majority of the miniature and dwarf conifers we offer
are Zone 3 and 4 hardy and others are Zone 5 hardy. Most varieties offered don't get taller than 1 - 6 feet in 10 years!
These small conifers are adaptable to themed gardens such as Zen, fairy and railroad scapes and are ideal for planting in
rock gardens and containers.
new varieties of dwarf conifers are being added to our inventory of dwarf conifers for 2019 as well as a Ginko biloba
'Mariken' for 2019.
