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 Hoopsii Spruce is a cold-hardy variety that has attractive silvery-blue foliage. It is a dense evergreen tree with a distinctive pyramidal form. The needles are highly ornamental and retain their color throughout the winter, which allowed it to win the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
