Extremely slow-growing and dense, this tiny, bun-shaped conifer looks like a mound of moss. It sports so many short branchlets and so many slightly twisted, short needles that the surface appears smooth. A TRUdwarf® mugo selected by John Mitsch of Aurora, Oregon, the reliable, consistent pine takes on a frosted look when its waxy buds emerge. Site this distinctive beauty in a prime location in the rock garden, trough or use in a miniature landscape.
