Considering New Shrubs and Trees

Here are some great finds that we uncovered during a recent trip to Bachman’s. Which will we choose? Even we aren’t sure yet… but I guarantee you they’ll be featured in the big exterior reveal. Which is only a few weeks away!

Mint Julep Ponpon Juniper – grows 4′-6′ with attractive mint green foliage. It’s trained as a ponpon and can stay a manageable size as long as you tend to it over the course of the year.
Dwarf Scotch Pine – our current favorite, and of course the most expensive. Has rich blue-green needles and an attractive reddish bark. You can maintain the present size and shape with pruning, which is a bonus.
Mugho Dwarf Pine – grows 6′-8′ tall and up to 10′ wide. It’s got a mounded shape with dark green foliage. It needs to be pruned to maintain its shape.
Morel-red Pine – a dwarf form of Red Pine that grows up to 6′ high. It maintains a dense, rounded form with long, light green needles.
