Design IdeasThis is the ideal Spruce for the small garden. Reaching just fifteen feet tall, it is excellent for front lawns in the most limited landscapes, or use as a background foliage plant behind beds and borders. Good choice to fill up a bare corner or to provide mass in gardens of dwarf conifers and other very hardy low-growing plants. Dense and durable, it works well in windbreaks, shelterbelts, as a screen or sound barrier.
Care Information
Thrives in humus rich, well drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
