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 three collections of conifers:
- the Walter Collection
- the Hermsen Collection
- the Mozena Collection
Some interesting Conifer Facts
Within these three beautiful collections, our plant count numbers almost 500. In addition, these 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.
