Dwarf Spruce Tree – Jean's Dilly ( Botanical Name: Picea Glauca Jean's Dilly) is a refined dwarf conifer tree prized for its elegant pyramidal shape and fine foliage. This cultivar, a sophisticated version of the popular Dwarf Alberta Spruce, offers slower growth, a more conically upright form, and even finer foliage, making it a perfect choice for rock gardens and creative landscaping projects.

With its rich green evergreen foliage, Jean's Dilly Spruce adds a touch of natural beauty to any landscape. The needles emerge light green in spring and maintain their vibrant green color throughout the winter months, providing year-round interest and appeal.

At maturity, this dwarf spruce reaches a height of approximately 4 feet with a spread of 24 inches. Its compact growth habit means it fills out right to the ground. This eliminates the need for additional facer plants in front. With a slow growth rate, Jean's Dilly Spruce can thrive for 50 years or more under ideal conditions.

Thriving in full sun to partial shade, this spruce variety is adaptable to various soil types and pH levels. While it prefers average to moist conditions, it is essential to avoid allowing the soil to dry out completely. Additionally, Jean's Dilly Spruce exhibits some tolerance to urban pollution. This makes it suitable for planting in garden settings or relatively sheltered locations.

Overall, the Dwarf Spruce Tree – Jean's Dilly stands out as an exceptional choice for discerning gardeners seeking a refined and elegant addition to their landscape.
