 Serbian Spruce:


Serbian Spruce (Picea omorika 'Pimoko')
introduced in 1980, is among the smallest of the dwarf forms of this plant. It grows only about an inch & a half a year, forming a foot high, sixteen inch wide domed mound in ten years. As a bonsai with limited resources for its roots & expert pruning, it can remain even smaller. The species has additionally provided weeping forms, skinny upright forms, wide conical forms, prostrate forms, & varieties that are curiously irregular. The spruce needles are themselves miniatures at only one-fourth inch length, densely compact. The needles are grey-green to dark blue-green, having silvery-white stomotal bands. It can make quite a startling contrast alongside a regular dark green or a yellow-green dwarf conifer.
It wants rich humusy soil, moist with perfect drainage, & lots of sun, though it can sunburn in particularly lengthy hot days, or windburn in exposed locations during winter.
