The Dwarf Mugo Pine is the best possible version of this well-known, hardy mounding evergreen. It is always compact and neat, forming a rich-green rounded bush with a slightly irregular outline. The dark foliage is always attractive, and this tree is among the easiest of evergreens to grow. Trouble-free, winter hardy to minus 50, long-lived and reliable, you couldn’t ask for more from any plant. It looks lovely wherever you plant it. Perhaps you can plant it in a bed of mixed shrubs, or with other evergreens among rocks and gravel. It blends perfectly into Japanese and Asian themes too, or in more structured flower garden. In cold areas especially, no garden is truly complete without a Dwarf Mugo Pine.

  • Attractive mounding bushy pine tree
  • Dense, deep-green needles
  • Lots of character for any type of garden
  • Easily grown, even in dry, rocky soil
  • Very cold hardy down to minus 50

Unlike other mugo pine trees, the Dwarf Mugo Pine stays small and neat without any trimming needed. It will usually grow no more than 3 feet tall and wide, so it is the perfect choice for a smaller space. Plant it in full sun in well-drained soil. It grows well in sand and gravel soils too, and it is usually free of serious pests or diseases. For a super-compact form, trim in spring. It can even be grown in a container or developed as a stunning bonsai tree.
