Calvary Norway Spruce

Don’t let the long thick needles fool you to think this is a Picea pungens instead of a Picea abies. With a spreading, nest-like form, it can provide a handsome groundcover in many climates. A very slight hint of blue in the deep green color makes for an attractive plant. Found at Mount Calvary Cemetery in Davenport, Iowa by Randy Dykstra, Heartland Gardens, and the late conifer promoter Chub Harper.
