Where do you live? That can have something to do with your success or lack of it.

Sweet tree Kevin. Makes me want to give another mugo a shot (killed one years ago). How long did you spend looking for one with such a nice structure?

less than 30 minutes... they were on clearance, and all looked to be about the same type of birds nest mess,
so I just felt around under the skirts until i found a fat base, and figured the rest out later LOL...
i DID however spend MANY hours looking at it once it came home tongue Wink

hey VANCE - glad to see you pop in !

I just asked that to make certain you were not living in the desert somewhere.  I seriously doubt that climate is a definitive factor and that especially in your climate you should be able to grow Mugos with no problem.   I am thinking the problem is with something you are doing or not doing. Most of the time the problem comes down to a lack of water by those who think Mugos want to be kept dry like other Pines we hear about. The other main problem is the timing for repotting.
