Entering into the gardens, the conifers provide a year-round respite from the outside world. We believe you’ll find the unique shapes and colors fascinating on your every returning visit.
The Dubuque Arboretum has two collections of dwarf conifers:
- the Walter Collection; and
- the Hermsen Collection.
Some interesting Conifer Facts
Within these two collections, our plant count numbers more than 360. In addition, these 360 plants:
- represent over 12 different genus and dozens of species and cultivars; and
- originate from around the world.
Plant sizes range from large (40- to 50-foot specimens) to plants as small as 12”. There are plants that would fit into any size garden you have.
