This low dense spreading shrub is a prostrate cultivar of Scots pine, a medium to large evergreen tree from the upper latitudes of the Old World.

Like all Scots pines, 'Hillside Creeper' has stiff, slightly twisted blue green needles that occur in bundles of two. The needles turn yellow-green in winter. The densely needled, ground-hugging branches of this cultivar spread slowly to form a shaggy multi-layered mat of knee height or less.

Scots pines do best in full sun and well-drained, acidic...

Its stiff, slightly twisted needles often have an attractive bluish cast. Numerous cultivars have been selected including 'Fastigiata' and the dwarf 'Beuvronensis'.

Native to mountains throughout much of Mexico, this medium-sized evergreen tree is closely related to Ponderosa pine.

The medium to long, supple, grass-green needles of this pine are sparsely borne in bundles of three toward the tips of horizontal to slightly ascending branches. In spring, tiny male cones and egg-shaped to cylindrical female cones appear near the branch tips.

(Japanese Black Pine)

Japanese black pine, a native of eastern Asia, is an evergreen tree with stiff, dark green, twisted needles. In spring the upright, silvery new shoots are displayed like white candles against the dark foliage. Dense and pyramidal when young, the habit becomes open and irregular with age, exposing the picturesque, twisting branches. Japanese black pine excels in full sun and well drained soil, being both drought and salt tolerant. Use as an intriguing specimen or in a naturalistic setting as a screen...
