Picea mariana 'Nana'
Dwarf Black Spruce, Dwarf Double Spruce, Dwarf Bog Spruce
|Tall, stiff-needled, pyramidal trees, spruces grow in almost any soil. Use the larger types in park or landscape plantings. The slower-growing species are better in the garden. Planted close together, their dense foliage makes an excellent windbreak. Spruces lose their lower branches fairly early in life, and their crowns thin as they age. The pendent cones grow year-round. Easily transplanted.
This mat-forming cultivar makes a dense mound of gray-green needles. Useful in rock gardens. Species habitat is wet soils and bogs, and soils enriched with peat, clay, and loam. Spruce beer and Spruce gum were made from this species and from Red Spruce.
