Dwarf Alberta Spruce, also known as Dwarf White Spruce, is a small tree with very dense foliage. It is an attractive specimen in landscape designs and small yards. This plant naturally grows into the classic conical shape, but responds well to shearing and pruning. Dwarf Alberta Spruce is hardy and disease resistant. However, its thick foliage can collect mildew. Consider planting this tree in an open space where the wind can dry out its needles.
This cultivar is often used where cedar or juniper varieties would be. It is a popular addition to landscaping in commercial or residential locations.
