Humpty Dumpty Spruce is a wonderful dwarf evergreen tree adapted for the coldest parts of the country. It is hardy to minus 50 degrees, and grows steadily into a rounded, egg-shaped plant that can reach 6 feet tall and the same across at maturity. It has tiny, dense needles of a waxy blue-green color, crowded together on equally dense shoots radiating from a mass of branches. The dense shoots and needles completely hid the inner branches, making a compact ball of colorful foliage. All year round, this happy plant will bring joy into your garden, and your children will love having their very own nursery rhyme character right outside their door. It is a great plant among the planting around your house, in beds or among boulders, or in pots and planter boxes for winter effect. You can then plant annuals flowers in the pots in spring, for variety and color all summer.

  • Egg-shaped tree of great charm
  • Dense blue-green needles crowded together
  • A smaller, rounded version of the well-known dwarf Alberta spruce
  • Hardy to minus 50 degrees
  • Happy in most soils in a sunny location

Your Humpty Dumpty Spruce will grow happily in a sunny location in most soils, it is hardy to minus 50, and does well in the coldest areas. It is not suitable for hot and humid southern regions. It makes an elegant and striking feature in any garden. With no major pests or diseases, this is the perfect low-maintenance plant for any garden in cold regions. It simply grows, with not clipping required –in fact clipping should be avoided, as the tree will naturally grow so dense and compact you could bounce a tennis ball of it. As it grows to maturity it will always remain rounded, compact and fully-branched right to the ground.
