Plant Types / Conifers
Conifers are mostly evergreen trees or shrubs with scale-like leaves or needles and seed-bearing cones. Usually problem-free, cold-hardy, drought resistant, low maintenance, conifers are prized by gardeners for their ornamental value. Providing year round color and interesting texture, they come in all shapes and sizes and make effective groundcovers, beautiful hedges, and ideal focal points. Some can be grown in containers or even as bonsai. They all are terrific additions to the landscape.
