The Skylands Oriental Spruce is a specimen evergreen of great beauty. It has a pyramidal form, with wide branches that sweep outwards with pendulous tips. The new growth is brilliant yellow, maturing to a rich gold, and eventually turning green deeper inside, making the yellow outer branches look even more striking. It is fast-growing, reaching between 15 and 25 feet tall, with a spread to 15 feet, and it makes the perfect unique lawn specimen for any yard.

  • Compact pyramidal tree with wide, sweeping branches
  • Magnificent lawn specimen of unique beauty
  • Brilliant yellow spring needles mature to gold
  • Striking display of red and purple young cones
  • Just as easy to grow as the common spruce tree

Full sun will give the best coloring on your Skylands Oriental Spruce, which grows in any well-drained soil just as easily as any spruce tree. It has no serious pests or diseases and it is deer resistant as well. Some burning of needles in summer sunlight can be seen when the tree is young, but stops as it develops. No trimming is needed, or desirable, but keep the central stem to a single branch for good trunk development.
