Norway Spruce – Little Gem (Botanical Name: Picea Abies Little Gem) is a charming dwarf conifer prized for its compact and rounded form, making it an excellent choice for small-scale landscapes, rock gardens, or as a year-round garden detail element.

This cultivar is distinctively small and compact, with a rounded shape that typically reaches about 12 inches in height at maturity, with a spread of 24 inches. Its dense foliage fills out right to the ground, creating a lush and verdant appearance.

This spruce features rich green evergreen foliage that emerges lime green in spring, adding a pop of color to the landscape. The needles retain their green hue throughout the winter months, providing year-round interest and texture to the garden.

Thriving in full sun to partial shade, Little Gem Spruce is adaptable to various soil types and pH levels, as long as the soil is well-draining. While it prefers average to evenly moist conditions, it is essential to avoid standing water, as this shrub does not tolerate waterlogged soil.
