Conifer Videos

Our Society’s mission is the development, conservation and propagation of conifers – with an emphasis on those that are dwarf or unusual -and educating the public about these fascinating trees. We hope these videos will inspire you to get involved with conifers – and The American Conifer Society!

Conifer Container Gardens

Here’s another take on using miniature conifers on the patio. Jerry has taken a decorative cement garden urn, made sure that the drainage hole is clear year round and created a small world with lava rock, pea stone and four different conifers.

European Larch – Larix decidua ‘Puli’

This European larch variety is a weeper that has been named after the Hungarian sheep dog of that name known for its long ropey coat that covers most of its body. Jerry got this specimen through the ACS Conifer of the Year program – another good reason to join.

Japanese Larch – Larix kaempferi ‘Pendula’

This weeping Japanese larch can be trained to fit most spaces as Jerry shows by propping it up with a porch post and decorative bird house.

Colorado Spruce – Picea pungens ‘The Blues’

A weeping Colorado Blue Spruce that can assume different forms, Jerry shows two specimens and how their growth tendencies have inspired him to take them in different directions.
