Picea abies Nidiformis

Norway Spruce Nidiformis

This is a popular named variety of the Norway Spruce, also called the ‘Birds Nest Spruce’. Unlike its parent, Picea abies ‘Nidiformis’ makes a compact dwarf conifer which develops into a flat-topped bush with a spreading habit and short, dark-green needles. The branches also keep an excellent layered effect making this an ideal specimen plant. The pendulous cones develop in the Autumn and remain well into the following year. An exceptionally easy to grow conifer for the rock or heather garden, adding an extra layer of interest.
