A small and slow-growing evergreen pine that makes a lovely bush or shrubbery.
The Dwarf Mountain Pine originated in central Europe and is commonly found within the Balkan Peninsula – rocky slopes with thin soil that are constantly exposed to the elements. This resistance to cold and drought makes the Dwarf Mountain Pine ideally suited to survive the weather cycle here in the UK. Their slow growth makes them low maintenance and easy to manage – a great choice for large patio pots and pathway borders.
All conifers are known for their hardiness and resilience against the elements. We often think of them being heavily covered with snow during the winter, but they can look equally as bold and impressive against a bright blue summer sky. Conifers get their name from the “cones” that they produce – which come in all shapes and sizes. Conifer leaves are evergreen and will either be needle-shaped or scale-like.
