Picea abies 'Klučenice' / Klučenice Norway spruce

<em>Picea abies</em> 'Klučenice' is a symmetrically globose, miniature selection of Norway spruce with short, crowded branching and attractive, radially arranged, Blue-green needles. After 10 years of growth, an mature specimen will measure 10 inches (25 cm) tall and wide, an annual growth rate of around 1 inch (2.5 cm).
This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found in 1990 by Czech broom hunter and conifer collector, Ladislav Krejčí. He named the plant for the town of Klučenice, a village and municipality in Příbram District in the Central Bohemian Region of the Czech Republic. This is likely where he found the original broom.
