This is a European spruce, Picea abies. It was collected in the Alps in May 2010 and already has developed very strong shoots in the first year. I edited it a bit and decided that it will be much smaller in about three years - just the right size. Until then I leave it alone, full sun, lots of water, lots of feeding. This will certainly go into my personal collection. I am happy that it found the way into my garden.
