Humphrey Welch and Gordon Haddow, in their 1993 book, The World Checklist of Conifers; as well as Gerd Krüssman's text from the same year, Manual of Cultivated Conifers, both forward the assertion that Picea omorika 'Pendula' is used as a name for a wide range of weeping Serbian spruces with many differing growth habits."
