Picea abies ‘Middle Finger’ Norway Spruce

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.


A narrow form with dark green needles. The central leader can put on 2′ of growth in one year once established. Similar, but a great improvement over ‘Hillside Upright.’ By comparison, ‘Middle Finger’ has side branches that are not just stubs, they grow about half as quickly as the leader, thereby developing a more uniform open columnar form. The side branches have a dominant central bud, which is held upright, hence the name ‘Middle Finger.’ A chance seedlings Norway spruce found along a highway by Richard Haslebacher of Woods Creek Horticultural, Silverton, OR.
