Mugo Pine

'Slowmound' is a major improvement over other varieties on the market. This dense, dark green mound is one of the best, with highly reliable colour, texture, growth rate and habit. Beautiful year-round, it produces many showy buds and matures to a wide, even shape that is naturally compact. At only 30-60 cm (1-2 feet) in 10 years, it works well in even the most confined areas.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Mugo pines are adaptable to a broad range of soil conditions as long as the site is well drained. They are drought tolerant once established. They will also tolerate partial sun.
