A delightful freak of a conifer for the larger garden or landscape. It is a robust, broadly upright selection of Engelmann spruce with sparse, undulating, snake-like branches and long, Blue gray needles. It’s overall impression is that of a Blue Picea abies ‘Virgata.’ Due to the fact that lateral and secondary branching can be scarce at times, coupled with terminal buds that sometimes fail to elongate, entire branches may die back from time to time, adding to this spruce’s overall strangeness. No two specimens look alike.
