Picea abies 'Gothic' / Gothic Norway spruce

Picea abies 'Gothic' is a dwarf, slightly irregular, flattened globose selection of Norway spruce with dense branching holding medium green needles. In mid- to late-season, plants will produce an attractive second flush of light-green llamas growth providing a sparkling effect.

This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found by Charlie Hunter of Keokuk, Iowa at a private residence in Clinton, Iowa.
