What type of evergreen?

Asked August 3, 2016, 5:09 PM EDT

I bought a house with several of these very prostrate, flat topped evergreens, but I am unable to identify them. Can you help?

This appears to be one of the dwarf cultivars of Norway spruce, Picea abies. These dwarf cultivars are often used as shrubs in the landscape. A Google search, or using the Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder (http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/PlantFinder/PlantFinderProfileResults.aspx?basic=norway%20spr...) should provide you more information.
