Gold Drift Weeping Norway Spruce ~ picea abies 'gold drift'
In the words of legendary plantsman and ACS founder, Bob Fincham, Picea abies 'Gold Drift' is "unlike anything currently available anywhere." This selection is a golden version of Picea abies 'Reflexa' in that, typical of that cultivar, 'Gold Drift' is a strict-weeping, fast growing spruce that will grow skyward if staked while young or will ramble if left on on the ground. After 10 years, a mature specimen will be 12 to 15 feet (4 - 5 m) tall and 2 feet (60 cm) wide (if staked), suggesting an annual rate of growth of 12 inches (30 cm) or more.
