Dwarf Conifers: "Bailey's Upright"

Ithaca, New York 14850, United States

Created By: Cornell Botanic Gardens

Point of Interest Details

At this overlook, you are suddenly surrounded by a collection of unusually small spruces, firs, junipers, pines, chamaecyparis, and arborvitae. These dwarf conifers can arise in numerous ways, from a diseased tree, to some kind of genetic mutation. One particularly interesting story is a Pinus sylvestrus called “Bailey’s Upright.” Learn more about this tree at "The Mother of 'Bailey's Upright.'"
