Picea orientalis minuta Wells ‘Mount Vernon’

Found in a witches broom in an oriental spruce in Mount Vernon, we climbed up to the top to take cuttings off of it.  As the crew was descending,  they saw a smaller broom, of which they also took cuttings from.  The first broom cuttings evolved into “Green Knight’ and the smaller, minute broom cuttings evolved into ‘Mount Vernon’.

 

Discovered in 1978
