Low Glow

Texture plays a very important role in the garden. Due to their varying foliar types and growth rates, conifers can add a tremedous amount of texture throughout your landscape. One pine in particular comes to mind as a great addition to my garden because of its interesting foliar texture, compact form and great green color.

Pinus densiflora 'Low Glow'

Pinus densiflora ‘Low Glow’ grows as a somewhat flat-topped mound and will tend to fill more horizontal real estate in the landscape than it will vertical. It has a fresh spring-green look to it all year and the coarse needles and compact form make for a very interesting texture.

My friends in the south tell me that it’s heat-hardy to zone 9 and cold hardy to zone 5, so it really should be used in most any garden all throughout the U.S. Who could ask for more in a great conifer?
