Winter Conifers

Winter time - with or without snow - presents a wonderful time to explore the gardens and see our ever expanding conifer collections. We have conifers in many locations in every garden within Red Butte. There are many new and unique varieties added each year and the best way to find out about them is to visit often and explore every garden.

Globe Scotch Pine       Pinus sylvestris 'Globosa Viridis'

We have been adding quite a few new dwarf conifers in the recent seasons. They are mainly planted adjacent to the Orangerie building and near the creek in the Rose garden, but you can also find a few scattered throughout other gardens.
