Conifer Love – Garden Design

Conifer Love – Garden Design

in Shrubs | 0 comments

As the snow melts and I begin to see green again, some of my favorite conifers start peeking out. Conifers are evergreen trees or shrubs that bear cones and needle-like leaves. Well-known members are Pines, Junipers and Spruces. They are a great addition to any landscape because they add year-round color. Many conifers are drought tolerant and unless planted in the wrong place, they do not need pruning. The following picture was taken on a trip to Asheville:

Arborvitaes (Thuja occidentalis ‘Emerald Green’) flank the front door

Golden False Cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Gold Mop’) adds yellow contrast

The little blue shrub on the right-hand side closest to the brick wall is a Blue Star Juniper (Juniperus squamata ‘Blue Star’) (The other bluish plant is lavender.)
