Conifers - ancient treasures, yet totally on trend!
by Colour your Life, CYL
There is much more to discover about conifers than you might at first sight think. Did you know, for example, that there are at least 600 species of conifers? Think of the cypress, pine, spruce (better known perhaps as the Christmas tree) and juniper. This family of plants also has a rich history: conifers are truly ancient, having been on the earth for about 230 million years. Indeed, t his was the first group of plants on earth that propagated themselves using primitive flowers and true seeds.
