The Harper Collection of Dwarf & Rare Conifers

The Harper Collection of Dwarf & Rare Conifers was established by Justin “Chub” Harper in 1981 with the donation of 351 plants from his own backyard.  More than 30 years later the collection has grown to over 500 specimens. This collection is supported by The Harper Dwarf & Rare Conifer Collection Endowment created and funded by Mr. Harper and many other people who enjoy dwarf and rare conifers.  A percentage of the income from this Endowment supports the management and maintenance of the conifer collection.
