Conifers: Surviving Winter with Grace

September 6, 2017

The “flowering plants” that get all our attention during the growing season have finally cleared the stage. It’s now time to see another group of plants shine. Mount Auburn’s conifer collection is notable for its diversity (nearly 80 different types) and depth (more than 1,500 plants). Some of our specimens are truly unique for their great age, impressive size, or rarity. Join Curator of Horticultural Collections Dennis Collins for a walk to see and learn about some of the many conifers that make up this ancient and sometimes under-appreciated group of plants.
