Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
A species which normally reaches large proportions, Picea abies 'Little Gem' is very different - with a mature height of just 50cm (20")! This dwarf Norway Spruce is a very slow-growing, evergreen conifer, with dense dark green leaves which form an overall cushion habit. As the new leaves emerge lime-green in spring they make a fabulous contrast to the darker mature leaves. Tough and easy to grow, this little spruce is ideal for low maintenance gardens, patio containers, gravel gardens and rock gardens and has been awarded an RHS AGM. Height and Spread: 50cm (20").
