Black Hills Spruce
Serbian Spruce

Black Hills Spruce is a subspecies of White Spruce native to the Black Hills of South Dakota. It has a strongly conical form, slower growth rate and denser foliage than typical white spruce, making it preferable as a specimen tree for smaller suburban lawns. It also responds well to pruning, and can be used as a hedge or even bonsai.

The Black Hills Spruce is a long time favourite of our Seed Plant Manager. She sees hundreds of varieties of different trees, but this one is her favourite.

Serbian Spruce is a medium-sized evergreen. Even in the absence of competition, Serbian Spruce has a slender form.

It is commonly used as an ornamental tree due to its columnar shape. Serbian Spruce can grow on a variety of sites, but it prefers moist drained soils.
