The Birds Nest Spruce (Picea abies 'Nidiformis') is a dwarf evergreen conifer that showcases a dense and symmetrical growth habit reminiscent of a bird's nest, hence its name. This compact and rounded shrub features short, deep green needles that retain their color throughout the year, ensuring a beautiful display in every season. Its perfectly shaped form adds a sense of balance and harmony to any garden setting.
Standing at a height of approximately 2 to 3 feet (60 to 90 cm) with a similar spread, the Birds Nest Spruce is an excellent choice for small gardens, rockeries, or as a container plant. Its compact size allows for versatile placement options, whether as an eye-catching centerpiece or as an accent in mixed borders. Additionally, it can be used to create a striking low hedge or an attractive addition to Japanese-inspired gardens.
Beyond its aesthetic appeal, the Birds Nest Spruce is known for its hardy and low-maintenance nature. It is highly adaptable to various soil conditions, including well-drained soils, and it thrives in full sun to partial shade. With minimal pruning requirements, this conifer is perfect for gardeners seeking a hassle-free addition to their outdoor space.Botanical Name: Picea abies 'Nidiformis'
