About This Product

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.

Trees were very small…not even 12 inches tall.
Trees were very small. Definitely not what I expected. These trees will take too long to get to where I need them to be.

    Way undersized
    These are advertised as 12-24 inches tall but as many reviews have stated, actually came well under 12.

      Small Dwarf Alberta Spruce
      I didn’t want to wait until the fall for my dwarf Alberta Spruce to show up in the garden center, so I took a chance on these. Two of them were shipped in one 12x14x7” cardboard box. The flower pots were each seven inches tall. One tree was 7” and one was 8” and shrink wrapped in the pot to make it fit. I guess I should have waited. I planted them anyway since they had a lot of new growth.

            Ordered this tree mthe first week of November. The plant was described as being between 12 and 24 inches tall at the cost of $30 plus. During the first week of December there was still no deliver and the track your order no longer worked. Home Depot was very helpful and checked into it and promised a refund, still waiting. The product did finally arrive at the end of December and was less than 6” what can best be described as, Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree for a cat.

            What a joke
            Tree is about 5 inches high in a 1/2 gallon container. What a joke. Hope I can return as I was expecting a 1 ft specimen at least for that price.

              Disappointed customer
              Ordered tree in November and just received it Dec. 15. Size was stated as 1 gal. and pot is 6 " across and plant is 4 " tall. Add states at least 12-24" tall. Not worth $30.

                Feint yard work
                We ordered this tree and I originally thought it would be bigger, but that was my fault. We are planting it in a built Flower pot in our front yard and can't wait to decorate it each holiday. Very fast delivery and the packaging was perfect.

                  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.
