The Story

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.
