Acrocona

Acrocona

A wide, spreading dark-green spruce that has bright green new growth in late winter at the ends of the branches. Then, red cones appear along the branches coming out of the new green growth, making a dramatic display. This unique form of Norway Spruce doesn't grow huge like the forest tree, but will spread to 10 feet wide and be 5-6 feet tall. Acro means 'at the end', so cones at the end is Acrocona. The red cones will turn tan by mid summer, then tend to weep down, giving the plant yet another attractive look. Hardy to zone 3. Known since about 1890, when it was found near Uppsala, Sweden in the forest there.
