are typically slow growing and usually compact trees which mature 15 to 20 years of growth to a range of 2' - 8' anything smaller would be considered a miniature and anything larger we have multiple descriptions such as weeping, upright, spreading... just to name a few. Generally, dwarfs and miniatures have small to tiny leaves, short internodes between leaf and branch and dense multi branching habit. Dwarf plants are often best suited for bonsai, rock gardens, pondside, small gardens, and patio plantings and they are great for use in containers just be sure to freshen up the soil every couple years. Miniature gardens are popular in the Railroad, Fairy, Patio Trough, Alpine, Rock and Bonsai Gardening Communities. Miniature and Dwarf Conifers are our favorites to collect and sell!
