A living Christmas tree (this one in spiral form), the classic Dwarf Alberta Spruce (Picea glauca ‘Conica’) may well be the most popular, familiar, dwarf conifer in cultivation. It grows slowly into a perfectly conical, small tree with a thick coating of fine, green needles. Its perfect form, compact growth and dense foliage make it ideal for entry, container and landscape.
Botanical name: Picea glauca var. albertiana ‘Conica’.
