Spruce

Picea abies 'Frohburg' is a narrower form of Weeping Norway Spruce. It has a strictly pendulous habit with a full spreading skirt and a slower growth rate. Its finer texture is the result of shorter, slender, medium green needles. This is the perfect slection for  a landscape with limited space.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Picea abies Frohburg has a naturally weeping habit. It is staked at the nursery and will continue to grow upright as long as it is kept firmly staked in an upright form. It does produce a widely spreading skirt which will eventually form a very dense carpet around the base of the conifer.
