Picea abies 'Haga' / Haga Norway spruce

<em>Picea abies</em> 'Haga' is a narrowly pyramidal selection of Norway spruce with dense stubby branches, holding short, shiny, dark-green needles. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 3 feet (1 m) tall and 1 foot (30 cm) wide, an annual growth rate of 3 to 4 inches (7.5 - 10 cm). It is architecturally, a very interesting and unusual plant.
This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found in 1981 by Tage Lundell of Helsingborg Sweden. Gordon Haddow introduced it to the nursery through Kenwith Nursery of Bideford, United Kingdom. Lundell named the plant for the town of Haga, a city district in Gothenburg, Sweden, renowned for its picturesque wooden houses, 19th century-atmosphere and cafés.
