Tiny, radiating, dark green needles arch downward on short, nearly vertical branches. Brown buds are quite prominent on the branch tips. A dense, very dwarf globe, ideal for rock gardens or in a smaller landscape.
Found and introduced by Edwin Carstens Nursery, Varel, Germany. A notable specimen can be found at The A.M. (Mac) Cuddy Gardens, Strathroy, Ontario, Canada.
A very low-maintenance plant requiring little to no pruning. A smaller slower-growing alternative to Abies balsamea 'Nana'.
