Standard (high grafted), Dwarf Serbian spruce. The spread is about 6 inches right now.
Picea omorika 'Nana' Standard is the Dwarf Serbian Spruce that has those soft green needles on the top-side and the bottom side and retains that bluish color. The rounded form is very easy to maintain, a spread of 5.0?-6.0?, and around 5.0? for the height.
There are now a lot of these type of evergreen standards out there to use but this one has a 2 tone color effect. There is a nice subtle change from green to blue in the needles.
Evergreens on standards like this make an incredibly strong statement in the immediate area they are placed. Becoming a focal point, or at least an exclamation point, needing a supporting cast to show off this plants interesting characteristics. A mass of low perennials, or ground cover is a safe bet, not a group of 4 or 5 deciduous shrubs with the same rounded shape competing for your attention.
These globes also look great as part of a collection of conifers/evergreens. Though I would put them(evergreen standards) next to some lower, wider spreaders.
The other way to use these dwarf globes is as a pair, flanking a sidewalk or guarding the ends of a bed. I guess you would say this is the standard, typical, ho-hum way to be placed in the landscape. it's true, but it works.
Remember this design tip with these types of shrubs . . . think focal point, then place this type of evergreen where you want someone to look, a place of interest, and appreciate whatï¿½s happening in that space. Then surround these focals with subordinates to support the uniqueness of the evergreen on a standard.
Prefers deep, moist but well-drained, neutral to acidic soil.
