Umbrella Pine Trees are those fabulous, mushroom shaped trees, that can be seen in the town and countryside of most Southern European countries – but most especially and beautifully planted by the Italians along lakesides and boulevards to give essential shade at the hottest time of the day. Anyone who has travelled to the Italian lakes in Northern Italy will have at some point sat on a bench beneath an Umbrella Pine tree and watched the world go by.

We’ve always been fans of Conifers at Paramount Plants – as part of our evergreen screening options and as instant hedging – they are right up there in our best sellers list. Over the past year we’ve travelled far and wide to source an amazing selection of new varieties to vastly increase our Conifer Collection for this season – view the entire selection here on the NEW! dedicated Conifer section of our website.
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.

Although there are 3 families of Cornus (flowering dogwood), Cornus Kousa (Chinese Flowering Dogwood) and Cornus Florida (American Flowering Dogwood) are best suited to our UK climate.
