Not the case with Sherwood Compact. This mugo is truly dwarf with the added features of densely-needled stems accented in winter by golden tips and whitish fascicles -- overall looking like a "fiberoptic" plant!

Spruce, Alberta Dwarf

Dwarf Alberta Spruce was discovered in 1904 in the Northern Rockies near Lake Laggan, Alberta as two Arnold Arboretum botanists awaited the arrival of their train to take them back to Boston. Today, they would meet with serious government red tape and social castigation, but at the time they spotted the stunted seedling and recognized it as something new and different. Without a second thought, they dug it up and took it home with them.
