|Design Ideas||With its fluffy branch tips, this unusual ornamental Spruce has a hazy, less defined character than the others of its clan. Use as a single accent in Asian-inspired schemes or try it near water gardens. A lovely specimen for a circular planter, or in the corners of a square one. Add to entries, where its unusual growth can be seen as you pass through. Slow growth and shorter stature at maturity means it will work quite well in smaller gardens.|
