The Dwarf Spruce – Alberta (Botanical Name: Picea Glauca Conica) stands out as an enchanting addition to any garden or landscape. This evergreen tree, with its botanical name highlighting its compact nature, thrives in full sun to partial sun exposure. Known for its minimal maintenance needs, this slow-growing beauty requires watering when the top couple of inches of soil become dry. This makes it an easy-to-care-for ornamental choice.

Shaped in a charming pyramidal spiral form, the Alberta Spiral brings a touch of elegance to outdoor spaces. Its spiral shape requires minimal annual trimming to retain its form. This makes it an ideal choice for those seeking a low-maintenance yet visually appealing tree.

With a mature size reaching a height of 6 feet and a width of 5 feet, the Alberta adds a vertical and sculptural element to garden beds or containers. The bright blue-green needles densely packed along the branches contribute to its year-round visual interest. This topiary can be a focal point specimen, an accent tree in small spaces, or grouped for added impact, offering flexibility in garden design.

Thriving in well-draining, moist soil and suitable for hardiness zones 3 to 8, the Alberta is a versatile and charming evergreen tree. It brings both structure and aesthetic appeal to outdoor environments. Whether used individually or in creative groupings, its distinctive form and ease of care make it an excellent choice for any space.

Each plant comes in a #6 (6 gallon) growers pot. The plant shown is an example of what you will receive, all plants are individuals and we strive to pick out the best for you.
