Picea orientalis 'Shadow's Broom'

Shadow’s Broom Oriental Spruce

Discovered as a witch’s broom by Don Shadow, Picea orientalis ‘Shadow’s Broom’ was given to Jean Iseli in 1984. This beautiful selection produces bright, spring-green new growth that quickly matures to one of the darkest, richest greens in the conifer world. Short, closely held, shiny, green needles cover the tree’s ascending, rigid branches. When young, ‘Shadow’s Broom’ frequently displays a funnel-like center. As it matures, a leader develops and it slowly becomes a broad, mounding specimen.
