Picea abies 'Pendula Bohemica' / Weeping Bohemian Norway spruce

Picea abies 'Pendula Bohemica' is a weeping selection of Norway spruce with irregularly spreading branches that spread obliquely downward. A plant in cultivation will only grow as tall is its highest staked point. Terminal branches extend at a yearly rate of up to 12 inches (30 cm).

This cultivar was originally found in 1910 growing in the wild in Czech Republic's Bohemian forest. The Czech State Nursery of Žehušice introduced it the nursery trade shortly thereafter.
