Pinus heldreichii 'Compact Gem' is a captivating dwarf variety of the Bosnian Pine, cherished for its compact and dense growth habit. This slow-growing conifer is a superb choice for small gardens or rockeries where space is limited but visual impact is desired. The 'Compact Gem' stands out with its stiff, blue-green needles that contribute a striking texture and year-round color to any garden setting.

Mature specimens reach an ultimate height of about 3-5 feet, making it an ideal selection for gardeners looking to create low maintenance, yet visually appealing landscapes. It thrives in full sun, preferring well-drained soil conditions, which makes it resilient and adaptable to a variety of garden environments.

Commonly used as a specimen plant, the 'Compact Gem' is also perfect for container gardening, adding structure and elegance. Its robust nature and slow growth rate reduce the need for pruning, making it a low-care choice for busy gardeners.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
