Product Overview

Picea glauca 'Conica'
Possibly the most popular dwarf evergreen ever, looks like a small, fuzzy bright green Christmas tree, ideal as a garden accent; incredibly dense needles are very sensitive to winter burn and may need winter protection in exposed locations

Dwarf Alberta Spruce is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a distinctive and refined pyramidal form. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which can make it a great accent feature on this basis alone.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub. When pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new growth of the current season, other than to remove any dieback. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Dwarf Alberta Spruce is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Accent
  • General Garden Use

Features

Dwarf Alberta Spruce has green foliage which emerges light green in spring. The needles remain green throughout the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant.

Planting & Growing

Dwarf Alberta Spruce will grow to be about 6 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. This is a selection of a native North American species.
