Conifers are trees with unique scale-like leaves or needles and their seed-bearing cones are easily recognised.
They are mostly evergreen and can grow into large, often very fast-growing, trees, although there are many dwarf varieties, including many effective ground cover plants. Many conifers make good hedges too. Unlike other woody plants, conifers need very little pruning, except for where green branches appear in trees with coloured or variegated foliage.
