Pinus mugo 'Slowmound' / Slowmound Mugo pine

Pinus mugo 'Slowmound' is a is an Iseli Nursery TRUdwarf® introduction with 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, ‘Slowmound’ produces many showy buds and matures to a wide, even shape that is naturally compact. At only 1 to 2 feet (30 - 60 cm) tall and wide in 10 years, it works well in even the most confined areas.

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in 1975 by Iseli Nursery inc., Boring, Oregon, USA.
