Picea omorika 'Gunter' was originally just called 'Hexenbesen'. Its uniqueness required more than just an indication that it was developed from a witches' broom. Picea omorika 'Gunter' develops a globose shape with some apicality, but not enough to make it conical. It grows about 50% faster than the similar 'Pimoko'. The needles are more evenly spread around each shoot, whereas on 'Pimoko' they appear more two dimensional.
