Teddy is globe shaped rather the conical.   I have Teddy.   I   just love
these dwarf conifers.   Do your garden centers offer trough plants?   These
minature/dwarf plants that do well in a trough but would be perfect for your
gardens. These are usually offered for < $10 & are hardy.   You will find
deciduous plants also.
     A plant I purchased in St Louis was Muehlenbeckia (Creeping Winevine)
which would be a good ground cover or vine on a support and hardy to zone 3.
I now have a topiary frame covered with this plant.   In the spring I am going
to add it to a trough on a small metal arbor.
