Design Ideas: This 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.

Tolerates a wide range of well-drained soils. Thrives in cold winter, cool summer areas. Site a few feet from structures to allow good air circulation. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Fertilize before new growth begins in spring. Prune topiary forms regularly to maintain shape.

History

The 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.
