Picea-abies-FatCat

A dense, rounded form of the bird’s-nest-type Norway Spruce, this uniformly globose selection is a blown up version of ‘Little Gem.’ It has very short, stiff needles and short shoots that give it the appearance of a rotund, green cat, curled up in a ball for a snooze. Iseli Nursery acquired the plant, a witch’s broom from Picea abies ‘Graciosa’, in 1994 and officially named it for a tubby, slumbering feline. Extremely hardy, reliable and slow-growing, this kitty creates a presence in the landscape, but don’t try to pet its “fur”.
