Serbian Spruce vs Dragon Spruce

Picea omorika

Picea asperata

Serbian Spruce
Dragon Spruce

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.

Dragon spruce is a unique looking spruce, as it is more shaggy and irregular than most spruces. They have sharp, stiff needles that are directed forward on the branch and their colour ranges from grey/green to blue/green.

They will grow in nutrient poor soils and can tolerate stronger winds, making them a good choice for providing shelter.

This species has been declining due to deforestation and related human activity in western China, its native range. It has notable genetic diversity for a spruce with a number of unusual growth habit variants. Given the cultural significance of the dragon, this tree should not be underestimated for its beauty or usefulness.
