Picea orientalis 'Professor Langner' / Professor Langner Caucasian spruce

Argueably, 'Professor Langner' is one of the smallest selections of Caucasian spruce available anywhere. With bright green needles, congested branching and diminutive growth potential, this is a winner in any rockery or trough planting

[Coenosium Gardens] A dense, minature bun with small, thin, emerald green needles. Gradually remove the understock over several years to get this plant established. It grows less than 1" per year.

The original plant was a seedling selection made by Professor Langner of Versuchsanstalt, Hamburg-Ahrensburg, Germany, in 1976.

'Professor Langner' tends to burn easily in full sun, so careful placement in an garden area receiving only morning sun or dappled sunlight throughout the day would keep your specimen looking its best.
