Picea abies 'Chuchelná' / Chuchelná Norway spruce

Picea abies 'Chuchelná' is a flattened-globose, dwarf selection of Norway spruce with symmetrical, radial branching holding finely-textured light green needles. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 24 to 36 inches (60 - 90 cm) tall and somewhat wider, an annual growth rate of 2 to 3 inches (5 - 7.5 cm).

This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found in 1990 by T. Peš of Czech Republic. He named it for the town of Chuchelná, a village in Moravian-Silesian Region of the Czech Republic.
