'Adpressa' ('Albo-spica')

Leaves only {1/4} to {3/8} in. long, loosely appressed (as on fertile shoots of the type); tips of young growths creamy white. Although sometimes referred to as dwarf, it is so only if leading shoots are cut out. Left to itself it makes a tree, e.g., 73 × 8{1/2} ft (1971) at Grayswood Hill, Haslemere (S. semp. adpressa Carr.; S. semp. albo-spica Veitch).
