Upright narrow, Large, Full sun/part shade, Zone 3
What a statement this tree makes in the landscape! I find people either love it or hate it. Either way, it is a one-of-a-kind! Each example of this new seedling selection from Iseli Nursery has its own wildly unique character that combines the ground-covering qualities of its parent, Picea abies 'Pendula', with the bizarre, snake-like branching of Picea abies 'Virgata'. When staked, trees have a relatively tall, straight, sparsely branched main trunk and a thick, ground-hugging skirt that radiates outward with dancing, cobra-like leaders.

Picea abies ‘Farnsburg’
Weeping, Intermediate, Full sun/part shade, Zone 3

Picea abies 'Hasin'
Bun, Miniature, Part shade, Zone 3
Tiny green needles on a tiny bun-shaped plant. This one will need afternoon shade in order to prevent needles from burning. These are grafted on a standard and come in 1 gallon pots. Perfect for troughs or rock gardens!

Both forms available

Picea abies ‘Perry’s Gold’
Conical, Dwarf, Full sun/part shade, Zone 3

Picea abies 'Vermont Gold'

Short, lemon-yellow needles maintain the best color in full sun. However, if grown in more shade, they become a nice yellow-green which brightens a dull area. 10 years: 1' tall x 2' wide. Hardy to -50 degrees!

Picea abies 'Wingles Weeper'
Weeping - prostrate, Dwarf, Full sun, Zone 4

YEWS

Taxus baccata ‘Amersfoort’
Upright broad, Dwarf, Full sun/part shade, Zone 5
Because of it's hardiness, some question whether this is actually an English Yew. It exhibits a generally upright growth habit with outward to ascending branches. Dark-green oval leaves on a plant that is unique and bizarre. Definately does not look like a typical yew! 10 yrs: 5' tall x 2-5' wide.
