Picea abies Elegans

Dwarf Norway Spruce

Picea abies 'Elegans' has densely arranged, slightly ascending branches of dark green. It becomes a flat-topped, dwarf nest spruce that will add classy elegance to any garden. This conifer breaks bud and develops bright green, new growth earlier in spring than other nest types. Use the irregularly rounded, slow-growing, spreading plant as a low garden accent.
