The Green Oriental Spruce is a magnificent specimen evergreen, of great beauty, featuring very dark green, glossy needles on branches that sweep outwards, making a beautiful pyramidal tree with horizontal branches. Reaching around 12 feet after 10 years, it will ultimately grow 25 to 40 feet tall, and could one day reach over 80 feet. It is ideal as a specimen on a larger lawn, alone or in a group planting. The cones on mature trees are dark purple in summer, making a striking effect, and the tiny, bright red pollen cones in spring are eye-catching.

  • Tall pyramidal tree with sweeping horizontal branches
  • Powerful lawn specimen or for group planting
  • Rich, dark-green glossy needles
  • Attractive cones are purple in summer
  • As easy to grow as common spruce trees

Plant the Green Oriental Spruce in a sunny place, in any ordinary well-drained soil. It is hardy from zone 4 to zone 8, so it grows almost anywhere. This rare tree is as easy to grow as any ordinary spruce tree, and far superior in appearance to the common Norway spruce. It has no particular problems from pests or diseases, and it needs no trimming to keep its beautiful form. Keep a single leading stem on young trees to ensure the development of a strong central trunk.
