There was a good selection of evergreen bonsai at the Shohin UK II Exhibition 2015 from Junipers through to Black and Red Pines plus Hinoki cypress, Yew and Larch which technically is a deciduous conifer but I have added it into this set anyway.

Some of the two needle pines are commonly used as bonsai and include Scots Pine (Pinus sylvestris), Japanese Red Pine (Pinus densiflora), Mountain Pine (Pinus mugo) and Japanese Black Pine (Pinus thunbergii). They all have unique and distinct differences in their form and foliage making for quite dramatic and impressive bonsai trees in their own rights.
The Pine family (Pinaceae) is quite extensive with a range of species and genera including Abies, Cedrus, Keteleeria, Larix, Picea, Pinus, Pseudolarix, Pseudotsuga and Tsuga. Pines are softwood trees and are classified into groups dependent on the number of needles they have.
