|Iseli Nursery trough garden with dwarf conifers|
Conifers grow well in containers and add year-round interest to the garden. Most have evergreen needles (a bit of a misnomer because most shed some needles annually) and many offer intriguing cones of all shapes and colors (some are fleshy and look more like berries than cones, such as the cone of the Yew). A few shed all needles every year (think Dawn Redwood and Larch). They’re a fascinating group of plants.
If YGP doesn’t get you excited about conifers, I can’t image what will! I’m hooked!!!!!
