Picea abies 'Gem'
Coniferjoy...the reply from Iseli...
Picea abies 'Gem' - from our newest catalog - just released last week.
Globe Shaped Zone 3 Dwarf Green
This new Iseli introduction, a witch's broom from Picea abies 'Nidiformis', combines the easy care and durability of its parent with the tiny needles and tight form of a miniature. The plant's growth rate and ultimate size fit neatly between the faster, larger 'Nidiformis' and the very slow, very small 'Little Gem'. Perfect for today's small gardens, this treasure will maintain its tidy, restrained form over the long term.
This plant was found by one of our employees here on the nursery. This is a very new cultivar in the market place - the first plants were shipped out last fall.
You can download our new catalog from our site www.iselinursery.com. Enjoy, it is bigger and better than ever.
I have passed on your information on 'minima wells', thanks for sharing. It's hard to keep up in the world of names.
If you are ever in the Portland area, we welcome interested parties to the nursery for garden tours. We are here 8-4:30 M-F. I do recommend calling first.
Beginning to 2nd flush.
