Various sources seem to suggest that this Picea glauca × Picea engelmannii (Picea × albertiana). (e.g. https://www.fs.fed.us/database/feis/plants/tree/picgla/all.html) Can you clarify?

that's very interesting ... worth doing DNA analysis to verify. By the way, the link didn't work ...

hello ACS ... apparently, a the world is now closing around Picea × albertiana as the correct name for this trinomial. In order to be accurate, this record needs editing to upgrade it to hybrid status (over varietal), and all of the dwarf Alberta spruce cultivars need to be moved under that binomial. Thank you.
