Plants and Their People – Picea smithiana

Picea smithiana

Morinda Spruce. This lovely Himalayan spruce is one of two spruces that feature pendant branches to give it a graceful look. The other is the Brewer spruce, another native to the Siskiyou mountains named in recognition of a Scottish gardener who was the first to grow this plant in Scotland in the 1820s. Morinda is the Nepalese name for this tree.
