Picea abies 'Ceejay's Gem' / Ceejay's Gem Norway spruce

Picea abies 'Ceejay's Gem' is a tiny, globose miniature form of Norway spruce with dense, uniform branching holding short, medium-green needles. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 12 inches (30 cm) tall and wide, an average yearly rate of growth of 1 inch (2.5 cm) or less.

This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found in 1996 on a specimen of P. abies 'Pygmaea' by Chris Padget of the United Kingdom while at the Don Hatch Nursery, Devon, England.
