Jean’s Dilly® Alberta Spruce

Picea glauca ‘Jean’s Dilly’ (pronounced “John’s”) this extraordinary, Alberta-type selection bears the name of dwarf conifer pioneer Jean Iseli. ‘Jean’s Dilly’ was named by his brother, Andre’, to note the plant’s remarkable qualities. Much smaller, denser and slower growing than other Alberta types, its short, fine needles display a distinctive twist during the growing season. Spring growth starts about 3-4 weeks later than P.g. ‘Conica’s. Found at Iseli Nursery in 1981, this signature plant is a fitting choice to honor the co-founder of Iseli Nursery.
