#5 for Ottawa gardens

I love colour in the garden and this plant does not disappoint.  ‘Nidiformis’ Norway spruce has gorgeous light green new growth.  It is a nest-type spruce with a flat top.  The texture of ‘Nidiformis’ pairs well with other conifers as well as barberries and boxwoods.  It will also tolerate a bit of light shade.  Best of all….it contributes to the four seasons of gardening.  Yes winter counts as well so think conifers!

Expected size in Ottawa is 1.5m in width and 80cm in height (slow-growing).
