True to its name, the bright yellow needles of Picea orientalis ‘Firefly’ light up the garden with 12 Months of Color.® A seedling selection of P.o. ‘Skylands’, it is a much smaller, compact tree. It has the classic thin needles that open in spring as a brilliant yellow, softening to gold as the season progresses, and standing out against the green interior foliage. The perfect size for the modern landscape, it matures dense, bright, and bushy at eye level.
