The eye seeks out colours in winter as well. Our evergreen conifers are there to gaze upon the entire year.
They’re hardened against frost, they’re robust, and they definitely make an impression with their variety of sizes, shapes and growing habitats. The range includes not only pine, fir, spruce, cedar, yew and thuja, but also Douglas firs and sequoia.
When geometrically pruned they are also impressive as distinctive topiaries.
