When I used to work at a retail nursery people would come in and tell me “a tree grew out of my bush”. After asking a few questions I usually could figure out what they meant by that. In the picture you see the back side of one of the dwarf Alberta spruce. It has a regular looking spruce growing out of the tree this is called a reversion. The dwarf Alberta spruce cultivar is nothing more than a mutation. The reversion is the tree reverting back to its true self. If a gardener doesn’t cut out that reversion soon it will grow like gang busters and eventually the whole tree will need to be removed. If it is removed soon the tree will be fine and not have much of a dead spot.
