Picea glauca 'Mr. Journeay' / Mr. Journeay White spruce

Picea glauca 'Mr Journeay' is very dense and symmetrical selection of White spruce. It maintains a very narrow form with typical white spruce foliage color. It is a true dwarf with annual growth of 2-4 inches (5-10 cm) per year. This cultivar is very similar visually to Picea rubens "Bills Gem."

Bill Journeay discovered this amazing dwarf along a highway right of way in Colchester County, Nova Scotia, Canada in 2010. He transplanted the original specimen to his personal garden and named it after himself. It has been successfully propagated through grafting and plans are currently underway to distribute it throughout the nursery trade. 'Mr. Journeay' should prove over time to be an excellent specimen for small spaces.
