Mugo pine is a shrub or small tree. It grows best in sun or partial shade and in a deep, moist loam. The plant best recovers from transplanting when moved balled and burlapped. Plant size and density can be controlled by pruning. Mugo Pine is a favored host for pine sawfly and pine needle scale.

Several cultivars are available: 'compacta'-- rounded, 3 feet tall, 'Gnome'--about 12 feet tall, 'Hesse'--dwarf, 'mugo'--2 1/2 to 6 feet tall but very broad, 'pumilo'--prostrate.
