Pinus mugo 'Slowmound' Great bulletproof conifer for a wide range of environments. Also sold as 'Slow Mound.' This Iseli introduction has so many superior traits that it is designated a Jean Iseli Signature plant, a distinction reserved for plants that exhibit "marked improvement" over others on the market. The dense, dark green mound is one of the best, with highly reliable color, texture, growth rate and habit. Beautiful year-round, it produces many showy buds and matures to a wide, even shape that is naturally compact. At only 1-2' in 10 years, it works well in even the most confined areas.
