Considering a conifer? These beautiful landscape staples add year-round structure and color and life-long beauty and interest.  Our very knowledgeable tree guy John, has selected a few unique conifers that just arrived to share with you;

Pinus bungeana (Lacebark Pine) Slow to moderate growing, garden size, that develops spectacular multi-color bark as it ages.

Picea purpurea (Purple Cone Spruce) Soft, deep green needles with reddish-purple cones in the summer. Rarely offered in the trade. 

Picea abies (Norway Spruce) ‘Paul’s Select’–increasingly popular alternative to blue spruces as it has better disease resistance, softer blue needles, and higher moisture tolerance.

Metasequoia glyptostroboides (Dawn Redwood) ‘Schirrmann’s Nordlicht’ A dwarf selection, (under 10’ when mature), with soft, green deciduous foliage in sun, and more cream colored in the shade. Known for its cinnamon-colored bark and tolerance of moist soils.

Sciadopitys verticillata (Umbrella Pine). Slow growing, unique, living fossil with thick needle like foliage that is arranged in whorls on the end of stems that looks like an umbrella.

Pinus thunbergii (Black Pine) ‘Kotobuki’. Columnar, with smaller mature size, highlighted by irregular branching, short green needles, and bold, white candles. A favorite among the bonsai enthusiasts. 

Tsuga canadensis (Canadian Hemlock) ‘Jeddeloh’. Reliable, mounding/spreading, pet friendly, evergreen cultivar that does well in sun and shade. Structurally interesting addition to rock or shade gardens.
