#8 for Ottawa gardens.

Picea pungens ‘Globosa’

I have posted about this conifer before.  It is simply stunning and definitely one of my favourites.  Colour colour colour!! The blue needles are breath-taking. When the sun shines on the new growth on my ‘Globosa’ I am in love.  It is a winner because it gives its best all year round.  Even in early grey December in Ottawa (see picture below) it adds structure, colour and form to the winter garden.  In Ottawa you should plan on giving this beauty approximately 1.5m for height and width.
