Picea abies 'Pyramidalis Gracilis' / Pyramidal Graceful Norway spruce

Picea abies 'Pyramidalis Gracilis' is said to be a strongly growing dwarf selection of Norway spruce with ascending, somewhat fastigiate branching, orange-red branchlets and prominent, glossy reddish buds. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 20 to 28 inches (50 - 70 cm) tall and 14 inches (35 cm) wide, an annual growth rate of 2 to 3 inches (5 - 7.5 cm).

It cannot be said with any certainty that this cultivar still exists in cultivation or whether it is distinguishable. In 1891, German horticulturalist/dendrologist, Ludwig Beissner formally described it in Handbuch der Nadelholzkunde (Manual for Conifer Enthusiasts).
