Abies koreana 'Silberperle'
This tiny Korean Fir is an exquisite garden gem, with every compact branch decorated with pearls---really resinous, white buds during fall and winter. Short, wide, deep green needles, accented with silvery-white undersides, add to the plant's year-round ornamental impact. Conifer collectors and other discerning gardeners will love adding this dense, very slow growing jewel to their rock or trough displays, where it eventually takes on a pyramidal form.

Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Just Dandy'
This remarkable little Hinoki, selected from amoung thousands of seedlings of Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Nana Gracilis' in 1981, is the best of the best. Compact sprays of dense, finely textured foliage decorate the branches of the low, rounded, spreading plants. Such tight foliage is usually associated with miniature selections that have extremely slow growth, but this superior cultivar grows comparatively faster. It will reach the size of a beach ball within years instead of decades. Ultimately wider than tall, 'Just Dandy' contributes unparalleled grace and beauty to small spaces throughout the year.

Pinus strobus 'Sea Urchin'
Truly a miniature, Pinus strobus ‘Sea Urchin’ has giant appeal. Soft bluish green needles cover this little mound that reminds one of its namesake, the sea urchin.
