European spruce, Picea abies, collected in Austria in 1994. Planted into the growing field for ten years. First image planted into this pot in September 2006 and left alone afterwards. Then in June 2009 first styling. The front will slightly change. This is a keeper. The nebari is very impressive. In two years the wire will get off and then the crown will be cut back a lot. It will be much slimmer. Then I might place it into the final pot right away.
