Pinus mugo 'Jacobsen', also known as Jacobsen Dwarf Pine, is a compact, slow-growing evergreen conifer that belongs to the Pinaceae family. This cultivar was first discovered by the Danish nurseryman, Mogens H. Jacobsen in the 1960s.

The Jacobsen Dwarf Pine is a small shrub or tree that typically reaches a height of 2-3 feet and a width of 3-5 feet when fully mature. It has a dense and bushy habit, with short and twisted needles that are arranged in pairs on the stems. The needles are dark green in color and measure about 1 inch in length.

This cultivar is known for its interesting bark, which is reddish-brown and develops shallow grooves as it ages. It also produces small, oval-shaped cones that are about 1 inch long and have a light brown color.

Jacobsen Dwarf Pine is a hardy plant that can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, including poor, sandy, and acidic soils. It prefers full sun to partial shade and is generally drought-tolerant once established.

Because of its small size and slow growth rate, Jacobsen Dwarf Pine is an excellent choice for small gardens, rock gardens, and container plantings. It can also be used as a low-maintenance groundcover or as an accent plant in a mixed border.

In summary, Pinus mugo 'Jacobsen' is a compact and attractive evergreen conifer with twisted needles, interesting bark, and small cones. It is a hardy and versatile plant that can be used in a variety of garden settings and is particularly well-suited for small gardens and containers.
