Pinus mugo 'Krauskopf' is a dwarf cultivar of the Pinus mugo species, also known as the mountain pine or mugo pine. This particular cultivar is prized for its unique appearance, slow growth, and compact size, which make it an excellent choice for small gardens, rockeries, or as a specimen plant.

The 'Krauskopf' cultivar is characterized by its dense, irregularly-shaped crown and twisted, contorted branches. The needles are dark green and slightly twisted, typically measuring around 1 to 2 inches long. The branches tend to grow in a somewhat horizontal fashion, creating a slightly rounded or mounded form.

The Pinus mugo 'Krauskopf' is a slow-growing cultivar, typically reaching heights of 2 to 4 feet and a similar spread when mature. This makes it a suitable choice for limited spaces or in combination with other dwarf or slow-growing plants. It is quite hardy and adaptable, capable of growing in a range of soil types and tolerating varying moisture levels, though it prefers well-draining soil and full sun.

Like other pines, Pinus mugo 'Krauskopf' has cones that develop on the branches. The cones are small, measuring around 1 to 2 inches in length, and have a reddish-brown color when mature. The tree is known to be relatively low maintenance, requiring minimal pruning and care once established.

In landscape design, Pinus mugo 'Krauskopf' can be used as a focal point in a garden, a border plant, or grouped with other dwarf conifers to create a unique and attractive display. Its compact size and slow growth make it an ideal choice for container gardening or bonsai culture as well.

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).
