Botanical PronunciationPY-see-uh GLAW-kuh KOH-nee-ka
LoreThe genus name Picea translates from the Latin for pitch, a sugar rich gum extracted from spruce trees. Native Americans used its gum as a salve and brewed the resin into medicinal drink for childbirth and other ailments. Its oils have some commercial value.
Average Size at MaturitySlowly reaches 6 to 8 ft. tall, 4 to 5 ft. wide, in natural form.
Bloom TimeConifer; prized for foliage.
Design IdeasThis dense pointed conifer is a perfect front yard Christmas tree for holiday lighting at small city homes. Dense growth means it's also a great screen plant that won't overgrow tight spaces. Use symmetrical form as a single accent, in matched pair or in an evenly spaced series amidst hedges and parterres. Experiment with topiary spirals or poodles for potted specimens on entries and patios, where there's no room to plant. A beautiful choice for woodland gardens or behind water features.
