The Serbian Spruce is an elegant and graceful evergreen tree, and a wonderful alternative to the common blue spruce. It forms a slender, spire-like tree, with a slim central trunk and horizontal branches that sweep upwards in a very striking way. The needles are blue-green, with a silver back, and the overall look is a silvery blue-green, making a wonderful background in your garden. Plant it as a lawn specimen, or in a group of three trees across a lawn or on the edge of a wooded area, to be seen from a distance. Mature trees can be 50 or 60 feet tall, and just 20 feet or so wide. This tree is an excellent choice for a larger urban garden, and it is almost extinct in the wild.

  • Stately tall and slender evergreen tree
  • Characteristic upswept branches
  • Refined silvery blue-green coloring
  • Easily grown in urban conditions
  • Grows well in all kinds of soils

The Serbian Spruce will grow in all kinds of soils, from sand to clay, and both acid and alkaline soils. It just needs good-drainage, so avoid planting in wet, low-lying areas. It should be planted in full sun, and, while young, watered regularly and deeply during longer dry spells. It grows best in cooler zones and it rarely suffers from any pests or diseases, so it will have a long life in your garden. Allow enough room when planting and avoid putting it near buildings or overhead wires.
