|Botanical Pronunciation||PY-nus MEW-goh|
|Average Size at Maturity||Slow growing; reaches 3 to 5 ft. tall, 6 to 10 ft. wide in 10 years.|
|Bloom Time||Conifer; prized for foliage.|
|Design Ideas||Although Mugo Pine can grow taller with age, in the Japanese garden it is very carefully clipped into a neat mounding form. Of the small conifers, this is the easiest to grow in gardens and is often used individually or in small clusters with boulders. Has become popular as an evergreen contrast in perennial borders, but it's best used amidst other dwarf shrubs needing texture variations.|
