Product Overview

The Dwarf Alberta Spruce is arguably the most popular coniferous shrub and for very good reasons. Firstly, without any pruning or maintenance required this compact conifer naturally attains a perfectly symmetrical pyramid form. In stark contrast to many of its evergreen relatives, the dense needles of a Dwarf Alberta Spruce are actually quite soft and fuzzy. Although considered a slow growing shrub, this tendency is exactly the reason that Dwarf Alberta Spruce can grow just about anywhere in the United States. This evergreen naturally developed a slow rate of growth in order to live off of less nutrients when coping with extreme fluctuations in temperature that desert, mountain and Northern climates often bring. The Dwarf Alberta Spruce is able to withstand temperatures below minus 45°F and is also incredibly drought-tolerant, using its slow metabolism as a strength to live through the most scorching summers and harshest winters. It will eventually reach a height between 10 ft. and 12 ft. with a spread between 4 ft. and 5 ft., although it could take over 25-years for this compact shrub to reach its full growth potential. With a USDA Cold Hardiness range between 2 and 9. The Dwarf Alberta Spruce is the definition of low-maintenance, its lovely forest-green foliage naturally attains a symmetric pyramidal form and is among the most resilient shrubs grown today.

Nice tree
I received my tree about a month ago. It requires very little maintenance and smells nice. It doesn't look quite like it does in the picture, it started out maintaining the shape of the box it came in. It is looking better with time. Overall I am satisfied with my purchase and still think it will look more like the picture with more time. I would recommend this tree.

      Exactly what I have been looking for! Came packaged well and soil was still moist from being shipped out 5 days ago. They are great starter in landscaping, they are not mature and stand about 18 inches out of the ground.

            HD should have actual size picture
            HD should have picture of actual size of the plant’s they send vs. the mature plant picture they have on website. Actual plant is 13”H x 6”D in the 8” pot. However, the super dwarf tree looks healthy, the packaging was great and delivery service was outstanding. It’s mid August in Texas and I hope it will do just fine in the soil.

              My tree still looks like it was stuffed in a two small box and it has been planted for two months. I purchased the same tree from Lowe’s and it looks 10x better.
