Valley Cushion Mugo Pine - Pinus mugo 'Valley Cushion'

Regular price $18.99

The Valley Cushion Mugo Pine is a wonderful selection for the miniature garden because the slow-spreading canopy is gradually lifted-up by the wee trunk - see the fourth photo that shows an older Valley Cushion. The very compact, dense pine stays low and flat, much wider than tall, but in a miniature garden setting, it becomes a perfect little tree in miniature in a couple of years. 

Reddish, new buds complement the short, medium green needles, and plants grow very slowly, so they require no pruning. Mugo pines are ideal for hot & dry conditions when established in-ground, and can tolerate dryer conditions in a container - but don't leave it too dry for too long. (Move the pot into part shade if you go on vacation.)
