Picea omorika 'Pendula Bruns'
Bruns Weeping Serbian Spruce
Native to (or naturalized in) Oregon:
- Conifer, evergreen tree, very narrow, strict weeping, size in 10 years listed as 7ft (2.1 m) tall and 2 ft (0.6 m) wide, branches grow down close to the trunk, the terminal leader grows straight without staking at a rate of 12-18 inches (30-45 cm) per year. This is at first, but if the leader in not continuously staked it may "twist and meander" with age, resulting in no two mature specimens looking alike.

- Hardy to USDA Zone 4
- Originated as a seedling that was selected in 1955 at the Bruns nursery in Bad Zwischenahn, Germany.
