A 'Blue Cascade' blue atlas cedar wraps around a granite pillar to mark the entrance to the upper level conifer/zen garden. 'Toffee Twist' carex contrasts beautifully with the blue foliage of this conifer. Photo taken February, 2015, just after installation. Photo by Jay Sifford.

Plants can be paired with boulders, architectural elements and sculptures to create high-powered vignettes that are greater than the sum of their parts. Here, a blue atlas cedar is wrapped around a granite parking lot car stop set on end to create an unexpected vignette. Either would be interesting on its own, but the marriage makes for a one-of-a-kind focal point. Turn your imagination loose to find just the right combination that tells your story.

Contorted. Most of these trees arose as sports from weeping conifers. They are weepers on steroids, each one developing its own unique shape; no two are alike. Contorted conifers make incredible specimen plants when used thoughtfully.Recommended conifers: Blue Cascade blue atlas cedar (Cedrus atlantica ‘Blue Cascade’, zones 6 to 9, shown here) and Big Wave Norway spruce (Picea abies ‘Big Wave’, zones 2 to 8).

Love the colors and the mix of natural curve with straight vertical. Usually we think of stones as being horizontal and trees as vertical, but not so here.
