Notes:

I saw this evergreen at The Atlanta Botanical Gardens. The tips of the fronds are white . .and on first glance it appears to be snow, but it’s actually the color of the tips.

Does anyone know what it’s botanical name is?

    I think the white is the new growth on a blue spruce. Picea pungens.

    I think you’re right on the mark, Bobby. Now to find one that will perform well in S. GA. I’m looking at a couple of varieties.I need the dwarf-type .

    Being just barely into Zone 8, I’m wondering if some of the ones rated for Zone 7 would do good here in a protected area?

    Any advice/recommendations are welcome!
