A perfect little gnome hat that lights up the early spring garden with a bright, creamy flush of new needles. Who doesn't like seasonal variation?

Picea glauca var. albertiana 'Daisy's White' is a dwarf, conical selection of Alberta spruce with compact, dense branching and needles that flush pale-yellow, slowly changing to white-yellow and finally light green by the end of summer. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 2 feet (60 cm) tall and 1 foot (30 cm) wide, an annual growth rate of 2 to 3 inches (5 - 7.5 cm).

This conifer was first introduced under the cultivar name 'J.W. Daisy White' but was later changed at the request of the originator.
