The trees in this set are outdoor trees and come in 2 1/4" pots as shown. They can be planted in full sun to part sun with well-draining soil.

  • Juniper and Spruce are much hardier
  • Heat hardy zones 8 to 1
  • **Winter Maintenance: Clean out the dead leaves inside the trees when you see it - it's called "conifer dieback."
  • These are young, baby plants that will need shelter from the extremes

  • Full sun to part sun
  • For containers or in-ground
  • All are outdoor plants
  • Come in 2 1/4" pots
