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.

to enhancing mixed plantings, small conifers can be grouped with other plants to add year-round color, form and texture to
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
