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 cembra 'Silver Sheen'
A full, open habit distinguishes this Swiss Stone Pine, the largest of those we grow. Like other cembras, it produces long, two-toned needles that twist and weave together, forming bushy, blue-green branches with a "silver sheen". The beautiful, extremely hardy tree needs little pruning to stay in scale and makes a vastly superior alternative for Pinus flexilis 'Vanderwolf's Pyramid', especially in suburban landscapes. Deserving of greater use, it resists pests and disease, grows slowly and produces year-round beauty in many landscape positions.

Pinus koraiensis
Exceptionally soft and colorful, the Korean Pine packs a visual punch in larger landscapes. It produces bushy bundles of needles in three distinct colors (blue, green, and white), which gives the tree shimmer. In winter, loads of showy cones, iced with pitch, decorate the tree like ornaments. The cold-hardy, adaptable pine performs in a wide range of conditions.

Pinus parviflora 'Tanima no yuki'
A very slow growing dwarf, Pinus parviflora ‘Tanima no yuki’ begins its life as an irregular mound which, in time, will develop into a small, broad, upright form. One of the last pines to complete its new candle growth in spring, it unfurls its curvy, creamy-white, variegated needles to produce a delightful character in the garden. Excellent for containers and rock gardens, it will benefit from well-drained soil and partial afternoon shade.

Pinus schwerinii 'Wiethorst'
Loads of long, super-fine, two-color needles produce an airy, delicate quality, while a profusion of handsome, resinous cones adds to the presence of this large, graceful pine. Discovered in Germany as a witch's broom on Pinus x schwerinii, a pine hybrid combining strobus and wallichiana, it gets hardiness from the Eastern White Pine and grace and extremely long needles from the Himalayan White Pine. The outstanding, hardy tree will form a dramatic background or add an outstanding accent to the large landscape.

Early in the evaluation process, the long, narrow, light-green needles, strong weeping habit and profusion of buds and branches showed promise of extraordinary quality. 20 years of evaluation culminated in honoring the unique tree with the name of the world's tallest waterfall in Venezuela.

Pinus strobus 'Niagara Falls'
This handsome, cascading White Pine, chosen 2009 Collector's Conifer of the Year, was found as a sport of 'Pendula' and demonstrates a distinct improvement over that familiar landscape tree.
