I am new to US gardening and would like to plant a very small cylindrical (cone) type conifer that will not grow above 5 foot high , two foot wide. I live in a Zone 7 area. I would be very grateful for any advice .

    Dwarf alberta spruce are slow growing, compact shrubs that reach 6-10 ft upon maturity. You can prune to keep at the size you desire. It's the smallest conical conifer you'll prob find.
