White spruce is a tall evergreen conifer native to the northern United States and Canada. Broadly pyramidal when young, it becomes more columnar with age. Its cones are relatively small. Crushed needles emit a pungent, skunky smell. Many cultivars of white spruce are available, including those with smaller mature sizes or dwarfed and weeping habits.

White spruce grows best in full sun and moist, well-drained soil that is acidic to neutral in pH. It tolerates drought, salt spray, extreme cold,...

(White Spruce)

selection of white spruce slowly forms a dense conical shrub or small tree whose irregular mossy-textured surface gives it added architectural interest. The fine needles emerge slate-blue but mature slowly to olive-green, creating a multi-colored tapestry-like effect.

This cultivar likes sun and moist, well drained soil, and tolerates drought, salt, extreme cold, and other environmental stresses. It is useful for foundation plantings, containers, hedges, mixed borders, entryways, and rock gardens.

Originating in 1981 from a witch's broom of dwarf Alberta spruce, 'Jean's Dilly' is narrower, slower-growing, and finer-textured than its parent. Dwarf Alberta spruce is a widely planted, compact selection of Picea glauca var. albertiana, a large evergreen conifer native to southwestern Canada, Montana, and Wyoming.

Growing about a thumb's length per year, 'Jean's Dilly' eventually forms a dense, narrowly conical, shoulder-high shrub. Its tiny, whorled, green to dark-green needles...

(Black Spruce, Blue Nest Spruce)

This dwarf evergreen shrub is an exceptional plant for rock gardens and mountain communities. Its parent species is the black spruce tree of North American forests that can be found from Newfoundland to Alaska in peat bogs and moist upland sites. This indicates a tolerance for wet ground, which is a valuable problem solver where soils are too dense or poorly drained for other conifers. This squat ground hugging shrub produces fine branching covered with a soft gray bark. Short, four sided dark blue-green...
