Our Recommend Small Evergreen Trees for Landscaping in Las Vegas


Our arid environment can benefit from some of the most beautiful and exciting evergreens available at Moon Valley Nurseries. We offer a variety of small trees that can be formed into interesting shapes that are ideal for formal gardens. We can also let them grow as a hedge. Use these evergreens to hide things, create privacy screens, or to create a dream landscape design!

A favorite small tree in our area is topiary Junipers. These junipers are popular because of the dense foliage that makes them an excellent choice for shaping into spirals, pom-poms, poodles, and more. Other small evergreens that people like is the Wax Leaf Privet. The Wax leaf displays white blooms in the spring that contrast beautifully with its glossy green foliage. And, we can easily prune this plant into topiary forms. We have to mention our semi-dwarf trees, too. These evergreen trees provide lots of colors and a pleasing fragrance. Of course, these citrus trees also bear the sweetest and tastiest fruits anywhere!

Make your outdoor living space more colorful and intimate with these recommend small evergreens for your landscape.
