    Picea forma glauca 'Globosa'...aka: Globe Blue Spruce

    It may be Montgomery or another hybrid, but Montgomery develops more conical w/ age. It's a nice specimen, and should probably be moved away from the walk...

    'Globosa'..............height:3' spread: 4-5'

    'Montgomery'.......height: 6-10' spread: 6-10'
