Conifers as HEROES of the LANDSCAPE

Christie Dustman, MCLP, Principle
Christie Dustman & Company, Boston MA

Conifers are unique, versatile, and often misunderstood plants – they are far more than the landscape “blobs” of the past. Conifers can serve the same function as perennials and shrubs, as well as provide focal points and canopies in the garden. We’ll look at interesting conifer cultivars with an eye toward the sustainable and aesthetic benefit they offer today’s landscape professional. Consider the benefit of conifers as critical drought tolerant and heat resistant plants, as well as beautiful sculptural elements in the modern landscape.
