When you need a versatile conifer for evergreen interest, check out the Dwarf Mugo Pine. And don't let the word "dwarf" fool you - this small pine makes a large statement!

Aside from its stunning looks and pleasing shape, the Dwarf Mugo Pine is very easy to grow and extremely cold hardy all the way down to Zone 2, while also being heat and humidity tolerate up to Zone 8. It doesn’t get much more versatile than that!

Enjoy season after season of interest when you plant this pine that not only excels in appearance but also in performance and reliability. Your landscape is begging for a Dwarf Mugo Pine!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Dwarf Mugo Pines prefer rich and well-draining soil. Be sure that the planting location receives full sun, which means at least 6 hours of direct sun each day.

When planting, dig a hole twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Keep the tree straight and tamp the soil down as you fill the hole to prevent any air pockets from forming. Water the planting site when finished to settle the soil, and mulch around the roots to keep grass and weeds at bay.

2. Watering: Like most other pines, the Dwarf Mugo Pine will benefit from a weekly watering schedule until it has become more established. Water deeply and regularly for the first growing season - you can reduce watering frequency once established. After it's settled, natural rainfall should suffice, although you can water more in times of heat or drought.

3. Pruning: During the dormancy period (late winter to early spring), be sure to remove any damaged, diseased or dead branches away from the tree. If needed, you can prune your Dwarf Mugo Pine into a neater, more manicured shape.

4. Fertilizing: Feed with a general-purpose, well-balanced fertilizer before new growth emerges in spring.
