Barb Gerow

 

Barb Gerow has created a dozen miniature gardens on her property and these gardens include numerous miniature trees.

 

One example is Jean’s Dilly Spruce (pronounced John’s Dilly), Picea glauca ‘Jean’s Dilly’ which -- as a dwarf form of the Dwarf Alberta Spruce ---grows as little as 1/2 the rate of a normal Dwarf Alberta.

 

Another is the miniature Chinese Elm (Ulmus parvifolia ‘Hokkaido’) which attains a height of only 2 feet after 25 years. Other small trees in the collection include pines, hemlock and cedar.
