Truly…I cannot wait! I absolutely love conifers and I am excited for spring when the new selections arrive at the ‘Rideau Woodland Ramble’. Conifers add structure and character to a garden. They provide winter interest and they just shine in the spring when they push out their new growth. What will I be designing with this spring? Here are two of my definite picks.
Picea pungens ‘Procumbens’. This is an excellent choice for a groundcover and it looks beautiful planted with rocks and other unique conifers.
Pinus strobus ‘Niagara Falls’. This selection was chosen 2009 Collector Conifer of the year. I absolutely love the flowing habit and I think the name is well suited.
