Mugo Pines are a great alternative to the commonly used Junipers! They're for bonsai lovers who want a different kind of evergreen in their collection. Even those that live in colder areas can easily come to love this species!

Like their similar looking cousins, the Japanese Black Pines, Mugo Pines have dark green color with dense short length needles. They have a fresh pine smell all year round! Even better is that they're much easier to maintain so beginners can practice with them too.

During the spring, new growth shoots almost straight up at the tips of the horizontal stems to form “candles.” They're much lighter in color than the older foliage. The candles form an attractive accent that rises above the rest of the tree. Cutting or breaking off the candles can result in denser branch ramification growth during the summer. Mature Mugo Pines will develop a scaley brown-gray bark and can even produce small ornamental brown cones to boost their visual appeal.

House of Bonsai reserves the right to delay on shipping any live plant order by several days to a few weeks; in order to attempt to decrease the high risk of major shipping related stress that may shock the plants during extreme weather conditions (too hot or cold). If we are purposely delaying your order because of this, we will notify you via email. Before you submit an order, please be mindful of your local weather and time of year. If there is major damage (ex: plant is dead or many branches are broken), please contact your third party shipping carrier (ex: USPS, FedEx, UPS) to submit an insurance claim with them as we are not able to assist with that matter. The fault is with the third party shipping carrier for such damage since it happened out of our hands. We are not responsible for any damages after the order leaves our facility since they were out of our control. If the bonsai tree is still alive but weakened due to shock (leaves are yellow-brownish or leaves have fallen off) then we are happy to assist in proving post-delivery plant shock care instructions via email to revive the plant. Please notify us by email of the issue within 48 hours upon receiving the order in hand. Please email us at houseofbonsai@gmail.com with your Order # and the keywords "Shock After Delivery" in the title so we can assist ASAP. For further details, please read our full "Shipping, Return & Cancellation Policy" under Our Policies in our top menu.
