Overall Descriptions


Needles are short and soft - glossy dark green on top, silvery underneath. Compact, dense growth staying narrower than most spruces (about 15 feet at the widest point). Very tall, slender "stately" look when mature. Extremely hardy, and relatively undemanding. Considered by many to be the most beautiful and adaptable of all the spruces.

--Fertilization / Feeding:
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
