Picea abies 'Eva' / Eva Norway spruce

Picea abies 'Eva' is a diminutive, globose to pyramidal selection of Norway spruce with tight branching and tiny bright-green needles. After 10 years, a mature specimen will measure 12 inches (30 cm) tall and wide, an annual growth rate of 1 inch (2.5 cm) or less.

This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found in the mid 1970s by Tage Lundell of Helsingborg Sweden.
