Tolleymore Norway Spruce

Picea abies ‘Clanbrassiliana Stricta’ is named for Lord Clanbrassil of Ireland, who introduced several Picea abies cultivars during the late 18th century.  This selection matures slowly into a beautifully compact, broadly pyramidal plant—the ideal shape for a dwarf Christmas tree. It is slow growing and will not out grow its space.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

This conifer does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt.
