This cultivar of Serbian Spruce has proven to be a beautiful workhorse here in Zone 7b in full sun. I can’t express how beautiful the shimmering color of the dual toned needles looks. It has been excellent as a screen and as a stand alone specimen. New growth is soft and it maintains a gorgeous narrow conical form.
