Mugo Pine

(Pinus mugo)

This slow-growing conifer has unusually dense needles. It eventually spreads 15 feet, twice as wide as its mature height, so it's planted at the back, where it will grow to shelter the house from the street. Produces 2-inch-long cones.

Zone: 3. Hardy everywhere

Height: up to 8 feet.
