Will Picea Aibes closely follow the contour of a retaining wall?
I have a ~3 foot high L-shaped retaining wall that has an ugly cement corner that is about 7 feet in length. (3.5 each side of the corner.
The wall borders a neighbors driveway and the sidewalk that gets a lot of foot traffic. I'd like to cover the wall with a trailing conifer. But I can't have anything that sticks out. It needs to follow the contour very closely.
The bed itself is raised, fast draining, and full-full sun. So I think any conifer will grow there in my climate.
Juniper will do it, i know. But spreading juniper always looks ratty to me. So I'm looking for alternatives.
I love the look of Picea Aibes 'Pendula' I"ve been told that 'Pendula' is erratic and can't be 'trusted' to develop that way.
Would Picea AIbes 'Reflexa' do it? It seems to develop a skirt pretty easily.
Anything else close to that?
Thanks as always.
