Dwarf Pines add color and texture to a backyard or garden, especially in winter when deciduous trees have lost their leaves. They're a great idea when you want the green color and the conifer texture but your space is too tall for a forest. When planting Dwarf Pines, keep in mind that all conifers like cool, moist soil, apply a layer of wood chips around the base of the trees to achieve this end. In addition, water the Pines during dry weather.
Dwarf Mugo is a popular Dwarf Pine that displays dark green needles on dense branches. A very useful, slow growing evergreen for rock gardens, mass plantings, and in groupings with broadleaf plants. Makes a great container specimen.
