'Emerald Spreader' is a 1967 introduction into the nursery trade from the huge, famous Monrovia Nursery in southern California. It gets about 7 inches high and bears emerald green branchlets with a feathery appearance and is soft to touch. I have seen it offered in the Chicago area some by a few nurseries, though not common there, and offered by some mail order nurseries.
