Looks like you constantly prune it. (We’ll never tell that you don’t!)

We know that you hate to prune. It’s a chore. It’s hard to get everything even. It makes a mess. Well, we’re happy to report that with Little Gem Norway Spruce (Picea abies ‘Little Gem’) you never have to prune again!

Little Gem is an evergreen that is prized for its low-growing and slow-growing nature. The deep green needles make it look like a dense, naturally round puff ball that tops out at 18” tall. The slow growth means that it is virtually maintenance free - no coddling necessary!

This stunner looks great accenting rock gardens and as a low filler in those often forgotten spaces between larger conifers and evergreens.

Little Gem makes a lovely little mound of foliage that shines next to other plants. It looks really good in naturalized settings, like the aforementioned rock gardens, but its perfect shape makes it fit right into modern formal gardens and small patio, balcony and urban landscapes, too.

Line a walkway. Flank an entry. Put it in large containers by the patio. You really can’t go wrong with this little beauty. It will make you look like a pro pruner! Buy some and enjoy the accolades today.

* Easy care
* Compact form
* Bird friendly
* Evergreen
* Year-round interest
