We are very proud of the varieties of conifers that we offer here at the nursery. Conifers are woody cone-bearing trees or shrubs. They can be deciduous, although most often we think of them as evergreen. With the increase in demand for low maintenance, drought tolerant options for our landscapes, there has been renewed enthusiasm for conifers. They offer year-rounded interest, unique colors, textures, and forms to the landscape. Many horticulturalists and plant breeders have worked over the years to develop a variety of sizes to suit the changing needs of gardeners.
We specialize in growing Emerald Green Arborvitae. Starting at 4–5' tall and going up, these columnar evergreen trees make an excellent privacy screen. As we grow these in our fields here in the valley, we are able to ensure the quality of our plants, provide large quantities, and keep the cost down. Call us or stop by for pricing and availability.
Conifers are now available in many sizes and are categorized as large, intermediate, dwarf, and miniature. The mature sizes are based on what can be achieved in ten years' time, although there may be regional and micro-climate differences.
Conifer Growth Rate per Year and Mature Size
- Large: 12" per year and 15' in ten years
- Intermediate: 6–12" per year and 6–15' in ten years
- Dwarf: 1–6" per year and 1–6' in ten years
- Miniature: 1" per year and 1' in ten years
