The Weeping form of Norway Spruce (Picea abies) is an excellent specimen plant for the garden.
|Plant Type||Trees Coniferous, Dwarf Conifers|
|Sunlight||full to part sun|
|Soil & Site||average|
|Leaves||evergreen needled foliage|
|Dimensions||At least 6-8 feet tall by equal spread.|
|Maintenance||Needs to be staked to form a weeping tree.|
|Author's Notes||Other than the weeping habit of this plant another special feature is the basal branches. These will spread and form a carpet at the base of the tree. I commonly see these plants sold in garden centers and most have the bottom branches removed. For this reason the plant is best bought from a nursery that has these plants growing in a field. You can request to have these branches on your plant.|
