An outstanding weeping selection and a notable example of an old clone which needs to be rediscovered. Distinctive in its very formal habit, yet very pendulous with stiffly held, downward-hanging branches, heavily covered with soft, light bluish green needles forming a narrow, conical shape.
Comparable to Picea glauca 'Conica' except for color. In spring, the new growth is light green, nothing out of the ordinary. In mid-summer, the second flush is nothing but extraordinary; bright, creamy-yellow new growth contrasts dramatically against the dark-green older foliage. Drought resistant.
As a young plant the foliage color is deep blue changing to green than finally becoming a mature plant with a tapestry of green and blue colored foliage. Plant this form wherever your garden needs some relief from plain, green foliage. Blends well with all conifers and perennials . Drought tolerant.
White spruce has generally an uniform and conical crown. Its branches are slightly pendulous. The bark is thin and gray. The needles are light green to glaucous and cones, cigar-shaped, light brown. Appropriate in large gardens and parks.
A most diminutive dwarf Alberta spruce with short, dark-green needles with a slight blue cast! This delightful miniature can be used in containers, trough gardens, rock gardens or any other small space where its diminutive charm can be admired.
Super hardy, Picea mariana ‘Mont Tremblant’ is a very vigorous grower with lots of movement. Short gray-green needles cover long branches which curve and twist, arching up, out, and then strictly downward, it makes an interesting focal piece in most any garden space.
