Dwarf conifers as bird santuaries

I’m crazy about conifers! Is there any other group of plants that can provide year-round interest and display such a diversity of shapes, colors, sizes and textures?

But beyond being cool to look at, they are an important sanctuary for our feathered friends. Birds love to build nests in the thick cover, plus most conifers offer berries and seeds for food during the cold months. I found a great article that discusses how you can use dwarf conifers to accomodate birds in your garden, even if you don’t have room for a full size spruce or cypress!
