Picea abies 'Häsin' / Häsin Norway spruce

<em>Picea abies</em> 'Häsin' is a diminutive, cushion shaped, miniature selection of Norway spruce with symmetrical radiating branches, tiny, medium-green needles and prominent light brown buds. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 8 - 12 inches (20 - 30 cm) tall and wide, an annual growth rate of 0.8 to 1.2 inches (2 - 3 cm).
This cultivar originated as a seedling selected by Günter Horstmann Nursery, Schneverdingen, Germany. In the German language, "häsin" translates into "bunny." Note the spelling — if not using the umlauted German "a" (i.e. 'Häsin), the cultivar name must be spelled, 'Haesin.' This is never done, but should be.
