A small to mid-size tree that will be 6-10’ tall in 10 yrs, but may eventually reach 50’.

Pinus mugo 'Mops'
Globe, Dwarf, Full sun, Zone 2
This genuinely dwarf, winning selection grows into a low, dense dome that stays compact without shearing. The smooth appearance of the mounded plant is the result of many evenly spaced needles on abundant branchlets, all of which grow at a uniform rate. During most of the year, 'Mops' displays a hint of gray/blue in its green, but during the crisp, cold months of winter, needles take on a warm, golden hue. Great for confined spaces.
