Pinus mugo 'Corleys Mat' A dwarf evergreen conifer with rich-green needles. These would be perfect to train into a bonsai. Called ï¿½the ground cover pine.ï¿½ Corleyï¿½s Mat grows to about 12 inches in height then gets wider with age. We like to trim to desired height and width for a hardy charming mini pine tree. Or you can let spread as a low canopy to about 3 feet wide at 10 years forming a low mini pine forest. It takes full sun in a wide range of climates and is somewhat drought resistant when established. Needles, which are 1ï¿½-2 inches, hold their strong green color year round.
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Pruning time: spring.
