Conifers are crucial if you want to create a stunning garden. They are most of the time evergreen. Conifers are very easy to grow and extremely cold resistant. In fact, conifers are plants that any good garden needs in order to create a structure and to bring color and volume in winter. A conifer is the right choice if you are looking for a pot plant, a bonsai or a niwaki (cloud pruning).
