Black Hills 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.

Iseli Fastigiate Blue Spruce is perfect if you are looking for colour all year. A cultivar of the Blue Spruce, it is also known as the Columnar Colorado Blue Spruce. The Iseli Fastigiate Blue Spruce is one of the more distinctive evergreens. Its foliage is blueish in the spring and blue/green in the winter. Best used as an accent tree, the Blue Spruce has a narrowly upright and columnar form with upwards forking branches.
