Dwarf Evergreen

The Mugo Pine is a dwarf evergreen tree. Plant a few as an evergreen boarder along your home, or just one as a specimen plant in a side yard to offset seasonal plantings.

Your Mugo Pine is a popular evergreen and increasingly used for more than just household foundation plantings. It’s often underestimated because it doesn’t have showy flowers or fall color. However, it does have a highly-adaptable nature, and is hardy and carefree while maintaining excellent color and form all year.

In its mountain native habitat, the Mugo Pine can grow up to 20 feet tall. However, your Mugo Pine is a low growing variety, reaching 3 - 5 feet in height but spreading twice as wide. It has a dense growth habit and rounded nature.

The 2-inch needles are dark green, providing a vibrant appearance year-round. In the mountains it often grows in rocky, shallow soil so you don’t have to worry about having particularly rich soil for your little evergreen to flourish. It’s very hardy and won’t give you any trouble or require special care.

Your Mugo Pine adapts well to shearing, so you can feel comfortable pruning it into a tight, compact mound if you prefer or just keep it within particular confines. All in all, the Mugo Pine is an outstanding choice for a small shrub that will be a stable, standard feature in your yard year-round without any special care from you.
