Picea glauca Jean's Dilly

Dwarf Alberta Spruce

Pronounced "John's" Dilly, this extraordinary, very hardy Alberta-type selection bears the name of dwarf conifer pioneer Jean Iseli. Much smaller, denser and slower growing than other Alberta types, its short, fine needles display a distinctive twist during the growing season. It is very slow growing averaging only 5 cms a year. It is wonderful in a rock garden. Very young plants are excellent in Fairy Gardens.
