The grey shrouded landscape has certain ethereal qualities that fit with twisty, floppy conifers. The picture to the left is an early morning photo from a private garden west of Portland. The weeping Cedar in the middle is the variety 'Feelin Blue'.
Trios of conifers can be the best part of a winter garden. The big pine in the background, a small chamaecyparis in the foreground have their time in the limelight during the grey winter days.
