Jakobsen Mugo Pine

Pinus mugo 'Jakobsen'

This wonderful, new evergreen conifer from Denmark has a natural bonsai appearance with its low spreading branches forming in clumps. The dark green needles set artfully against the branching structure gives this slow-growing pine the look of venerable age and beauty. A perfect accent for low borders.
