Picea abies 'Wills Zwerg' - dwarf Norway spruce

Another lovely piece for miniature lovers is this dwarf spruce. It grows slowly, compact and dense to it mature height of 3m only after a few decades.

Needles are short and stiff, rich green. New branches show bright orangey-brown bark and are short. No pruning needed for dense growth. The shape is conical with relatively narrow base compared to fir which makes a rather wide base.

Spruces need fertile, deep soil that is neutral to acidic. They are fully hardy to -40°C (USDA zone 3).
