Dense, Dark Green, Dwarf Conifer

Mugo Pine - Pumilo, Pinus mugo 'Pumilio', is a popular dwarf conifer that is rugged, hardy and has dark green needles on dense branches. It makes an ideal choice for xeriscaping or for the moisture-conserving landscape.

Dwarf Mugo Pine is a useful slow growing evergreen for rock gardens, mass plantings and in groupings. It makes a great container plant too.

In order for it to maintain its excellent form, texture, and color detail in the garden, this Dwarf Mugo Pine needs full sun and prefers dry to average moisture levels with very well-drained soil. It will die in standing water.

Prune candles to keep tight and maintain a dense habit of growth. It tends to fill out right to the ground so doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front.

Dwarf Mugo Pine is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments.

This is a rather low maintenance shrub and if pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new growth of the current season, other than to remove any dieback.

Dwarf Mugo Pine Trees grow at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions, can be expected to live for 50 years or more.
