Best Dwarf Conifers for Landscaping: Small Spaces, Big Ideas

Dwarf conifers are ideal for small gardens as these compact evergreens do not take up too much space. However, although they might not be imposing in size, they are indeed impressive when it comes to their appearance! Unlike their full-sized versions, most dwarf conifer cultivars can be successfully grown in containers, planted en masse in contrasted groupings or used as a focal point with year-round interest.

 

At our plant centre, we have a vast collection of attractive dwarf conifer varieties for sale in UK.
Here at Paramount Plants, we offer an impressive selection of dwarf conifer varieties.

 

Ever since the 1800s, dwarf conifers have been all the rage in Britain, and with a good reason. These miniature conifers are fully hardy in the UK, easy to grow and to care for, and look absolutely stunning in any landscape. It was quickly recognised that the contrasting colours & textures of the various foliage could be used to wonderfully vivid effect.  In the 1850s, especially, there was a surge of interest in colourful dwarf and slow-growing conifer cultivars suited to smaller gardens and show-pieces such as rock gardens.

 

One of our most popular dwarf conifers we have for sale is the attractive Pinus Mugo Kobold.
Dwarf conifers are beautifully complemented by colourful cultivars. Pictured here is the popular Pinus Mugo Kobold.

Conifers cover an incredibly wide range of trees including Cedars, Pines, and Yew, all conifers produce seed bearing cones – they actually occupy a huge amount of the Earth’s surface. They are very often the last trees you see when scaling mountains, many of these hardy specimens have evolved a shape especially designed to encourage heavy snow to fall off the branches without damaging them with its weight and as you would expect Conifers can survive the harshest of winters.
