Slowmound Mugo Pine - Pinus mugo 'Slowmound'

Regular price $17.99

The Slowmound Mugo Pine is a wonderful selection for the miniature garden with gray buds on dark green needles in a dense, compact form that sits on top of a little trunk. It is a true dwarf that is small enough to plant just about anywhere. As it ages, the canopy will be lifted by the little trunk, and it will look more and more like a tiny tree each year.

Shear when it's young to make it bushier - which is best done before the new growth emerges in the springtime. OR leave it to grow up and it will become a lovely miniature pine tree.
