Plant Type: Conifer Shrubs, Conifer Trees, Dwarf Conifers

Picea glauca ‘Pendula’ was “rediscovered” by Jean Iseli in 1982 at the Morton Arboretum in Illinois, where a specimen had grown since 1958. Iseli fell in love with the distinctive tree’s formal, narrow, conical shape and its pendulous, stiffly held, drooping branches and loads of light, gray-green foliage and was determined to get it into the gardens and landscapes of today’s gardeners. The original tree was propagated by D. Hill Nursery from a tree in a native stand near Guelph, Ontario. Thanks to Jean Iseli, this elegant Weeping White Spruce was not lost to cultivation.
