Evergreen  Landscape


ARBORVITAE: lovely evergreen with soft green foliage for hedge or accent plants; tolerates light shade and poor drainage; upright form. Techny and Brandon. (12-15')

DOUGLAS FIR: Montana native evergreen tree with pyramidal form; less dense than Colorado Spruce, and with softer needles. (40-60')

JUNIPER, Rocky Mountain: native evergreen with upright growth and dense branching habit; colors vary from blue to green; makes excellent year-round screen. (15-20’) Varieties include 'Cologreen': compact, cone-like habit with medium green, softly textured foliage (15-18'), ‘Medora’: slender-shaped North Dakota selection with blue-green foliage requires little pruning (10-12’), and 'Wichita Blue': broad, upright growth habit with silvery-blue foliage that retains its brilliant color all year (15-18'), 'Moonglow': broad, upright growth habit with silvery blue-green foliage (15-20').

PINE, Austrian, LimberPonderosa & Swiss Stone: all are hardy and adaptable to many soil types and are valuable for windbreaks, but above all they are appreciated for their year-around, evergreen beauty.

Pine Cone

PINE, Bristlecone: dwarf, very slow growing; interesting growth habit with heaps of character; excellent for rock garden or as accent plant; not particular about soil, but requires a sunny location. (25')

PINE, Mugo 'Slowmound': slow growing evergreen shrub that might take twenty-five years to reach mature height; bright green needles season long; snap "candles" (tips of new growth) every spring to keep plant compact and tidy; likes sun. (3-4')
