4 to 6 inch cones are brown and found on branch tips of older plants.

Description: This pendulous form of Norway Spruce, although slow growing when small, grows into a large specimen. It can make a very interesting plant flowing over boulders in a large rock garden as it does not want to ascend unless one of the weeping leaders is trained up. Several leaders can be trained into different directions to make a rather fantastically shaped plant. A rather unusual plant, Weeping Norway Spruce could be considered, in one respect, a tree and yet could be used as a ground cover. (2 gallon - 5 years old)
