THE GOTELLI CONIFER COLLECTION AT THE UNITED STATES NATIONAL ARBORETUM
The Gotelli Collection of Dwarf and Slow Growing Conifers was given to the U.S. National Arboretum in 1962. Over the years, companion plants have been added to augment the nearly 2,000 mature specimen conifers that are arranged in a beautifully landscaped 7 acre (2.83 ha) garden setting. As these plants age, we are faced with collection management practices that are at once challenging, rewarding, and at times heartbreaking. Plant evaluations, integrated pest management practices, and garden design are discussed.
