Elf Dwarf Alberta Spruce - Picea glauca 'Elf'

Regular price $21.99

Elf is a true miniature garden plant with a growth-rate of less than one inch per year - despite it being called a "dwarf." ("Miniature" and "Dwarf" are the growth rates, not the description of the plant.)

It's a darling tight globe shape in a lovely emerald green. The tiny thin needles can suit any scale as a big tree for 1/4" scale or a small shrub for larger 1/20 G scale, garden railway. A very nice tree in limited supply.

The Elf Spruces are about 2" tall and have wonderful little trunks on them! April 2019 - Janit.
