Pseudotsuga menziesii 'Hvožd’any' / Hvožd’any Douglas-fir

Pseudotsuga menziesii 'Hvožd’any' is a dwarf, globose selection of Douglas-fir with exceptionally thick, Blueish green needles. It has a very tidy, uniform growth rate of about 1.2 inches (3 cm) per year in all directions. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure approximately 3 feet (1 m) tall and slightly narrower.

This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found in 1997 by Karel Malý in Hvožd’any, Czech Republic. There are a couple of misspellings seen in the nursery trade such as, Hrazdary and Hrazderry.
