Columnar conifers provide a vertical accent and formal appearance in the landscape. Narrow, upright conifers like this are useful for providing height in a small garden as well.
Columnar conifers are often used for screening or hedging, but with the many available varieties, other uses should be considered. The varieties on this page are more or less columnar, meaning that they are fairly tall and narrow, developing a column shape as they mature. On each product page, a full description as well as additional growth information is provided. Find the perfect columnar conifer for your garden by using the search filters on the left to meet your needs.
LANDSCAPE USES These columnar conifers are often referred to as "fastigiate," meaning that the branches ascend rather than point horizontally. This particular growth habit gives these varieties a formal appearance similar to that of the iconic Italian cypress. Columnar conifers can be used to line a driveway or to create a vertical accent among other, shorter-statured plants in the garden.
If you are looking for a conifer that provides some height without taking up too much space in your garden, one of our columnar selections will be the perfect fit!
