Dwarf Alberta Spruce Teardrop Poodle Topiary
Need a striking specimen tree but don’t have a lot of room? Our Dwarf Alberta Spruce Teardrop Poodle Topiary Tree makes a big impact in a small space. Groomed like a poodle’s tail (but with a teardrop-shaped third tier), it will draw attention to whatever area of your landscape you’d like to highlight. Plant a pair on either side of a path, gate, or doorway, and usher your friends into your home in style. Maintenance is a breeze, requiring just a quick shearing each year. Each time you trim it, your tree will grow thicker and more impressive, while never outgrowing its allotted space.
In 1898, a German-born man named Alfred Rehder got a job at Harvard’s Arnold Arboretum hoeing weeds for a dollar a day. Rehder went on to become a brilliant botanist, writing over 1,000 articles on plants during his long career. Around that time, a Canadian named John George Jack also began to pay his dues at the arboretum, making the same wage. He eventually became a Harvard professor. In 1904, the two men went on a plant-hunting expedition in Alberta, Canada, and what did they happen to see growing near a train station but a curious dwarf seedling of a White Spruce Tree. They brought the brand new “Dwarf Alberta Spruce” back to Boston, and the rest is history.
Dwarf Alberta Spruce has proven itself to be not just a useful small ornamental tree, but an elegant topiary tree as well. Our Dwarf Alberta Spruce Teardrop Poodle Topiary Tree is a classy accent that you can easily incorporate into the formal areas around your home. It has the look of a fancy finial, like those that decorate elaborate buildings, railings, and furnishings.
