Black Hills Spruce
Globe Blue 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.

The Globe Blue Spruce is a uniquely shaped evergreen shrub species, with a rounded and compact form. It has silvery-blue needles that can last all winter, which add to its ornamental value.

The Globe Blue Spruce is a cultivar of the Blue Spruce and is especially popular in urban environments for its eye-catching shape, cold-hardiness and high pollution tolerance.
