Answer: There are three plants in the Monrovia on line catalog that include the word Otto in the common name: a lavender, an English laurel, and a fuschia. None of these is close to a Picea, so unfortunately I am unable to identify it for you. Perhaps the nursery staff could tell you which cultivars they carried recently and you could narrow it down from there. Keep in mind that many of the dwarf evergreen cultivars are grafted, so a graft problem might explain the awkwardness, or if it is a trailing cultivar perhaps it has lost its stake, or something else unusual has happened to it -- it is after all the end of the season and tags do sometimes get lost or mixed up and other things happen to nursery stock so it may not be representative of its type. I'm sorry I can't be more specific for you. Best of luck with your quest.
