Japanese Maples and Conifers

Pinus densiflora 'Pendula'

 

This Japanese red pine will grow like a very contorted ground cover unless staked or grafted on a standard. With a little training this can become one of the most intresting plants in the garden. I have seen very old specimens of this plant with fat contorted truncks and exfoliating bark that could rival anything in the garden.
