* Pinus Rotundata (Dwarf Mountain Pine).
-- A handsome, globular variety that forms a bush 4 to 6 feet in diameter, clothed with a dense mass of soft, silvery foliage.
* Pinus Mugho (Dwarf Mugho Pine).
-- A very distinct species; foliage short, stiff and twisted and thickly distributed over the branches. Does not grow tall, but spreads over the ground. This and the Dwarf Mountain can be grown in large tubs with good success, and can be removed from the lawn to the house in Winter.
* Retinospora PIumosa Aurea (Golden Japanese Cypress)
-- This is a most interesting family of evergreens of dwarf habit, and particularly suited to small places. The Golden Retinosporo is one of the handsomest evergreens that can be planted in the lawn.
* Retinospora Squarrosa
-- An exquisite Japanese form, with steel colored foliage, which is very fine and feathery; it displays many shades of color during the season and is largely used and can be closely pruned into any shape, associating with all the other dwarf evergreens.
* Pinus Compacti (Compact White Pine)
-- A dwarf round-headed tree, with numerous branches and soft feathery foliage. A charming variety.
* Abies Pictita (Siberian Silver Fir)
-- Medium size, leaves of darker green than ordinary Silver Firs, very soft and rich to the touch. One of the hardiest and most valuable of Firs.
* Juniperus Hibernica (Irish Juniper).
-- Very erect and tapering in its growth, forming a column of deep green foliage. Very desirable for lawn planting. Its beauty and hardiness make it a general favorite.
* Juniperus Prostrata. (Trailing Juniper)
-- A beautiful native species of odd, trailing growth. It is densely branched and forms wide, thick masses of delicate foliage. Useful for picturesque hillside planting.
* Juniperus Suecica (Swedish Juniper)
-- Similar to the Irish Juniper, but a lighter golden green; forms an especially pretty and compact little column.
