Four years of Picea mariana 'Ericoides'
A great little spreading near-miniature plant, this is often confused with Picea abies 'Blue Nest'(which may just be an illegitimate, duplicate name), Picea glauca 'Echiniformis' and others. Bought four years ago, actually I ended up with about ten plants, each for $1.99(yeah, $2 each), from Ebay. Apparently easy to propogate, likely even from cuttings(?), this beauty grows about an inch, maybe an inch and a half a year(3 cm) and has distinct colors during the seasons.
2012 Whereas these other photos were taken later in the season, Spring shows a lush, beautiful plant.
