Picea orientalis ‘Skylands’
This is the famous golden oriental spruce that is very popular with conifer collectors. It will eventually be a nice tall upright tree. One of my ‘Skyland’s was grown from a one gallon stock, and has shown no sign of trying to grow up in more than 5 years.
Picea orientalis ‘Tom Thumb Gold’
This is another famous golden oriental spruce very popular with conifer collectors. It is a sport from ‘Skylands’, and is a very slow growing dwarf. The first I was lucky enough to acquire is an ‘Oh My God’ size ‘Tom Thumb’. Unfortunately, it died of a fungus disease after two years in a horribly hot and humid summer. The two replacements are nowhere nearly as presentable.
