PINUS mugo 'Corley's Mat'
Corley's Mat Mugho Pine, Mugho Pine, Swiss Mountain Pine
Mugho pine is a dense, shrubby, evergreen conifer native to the mountains of south-central Europe and the Balkan Peninsula. The dwarf cultivar 'Corley's Mat' has short, prostrate, mounded branches.
The stiff, crowded, bright green needles of this pine occur in bundles of two. This cultivar slowly forms a dwarf, dome-shaped, hummock several times as wide as tall.
Mugho pine is best planted in full sun and average to well-drained soil. Its relative lime-tolerance suits it for planting near concrete foundations or walkways. This cultivar works well in Asian-style gardens, rock gardens, mixed borders, and containers.
