Most dwarf evergreens have a pyramidal or conical form, but sometimes a rounded or flattened form is ideal and that is where the Bird’s Nest Spruce comes into the picture. It maintains a low and compact form and makes a lovely green mound of branches. Although small when young, this plant grows quickly into a majestic pillow, much wider than it is tall – the ideal choice for foundation planting around the house, as it will never block windows.

• Unique mounded form
• Perfect light-green foliage all year
• Ideal foundation plant that will grow large without growing tall
• Hardy, easy to grow and pest free
• needs no clipping to keep its amazing foliage density

Bird’s Nest Spruce fits well with other evergreens and flowering shrubs, giving structure to your planting without growing tall and blocking windows. Planted in a large container it makes a lovely specimen with no maintenance needed at all.
