Serbian Spruce vs Oriental Spruce

Picea omorika

Picea orientalis


Serbian Spruce
Oriental 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.

Oriental Spruce is a dense, narrow, pyramidal evergreen making it well suited as a landscape tree. Their needles are smaller than other spruce varieties, giving it a distinct appearance. Cones start out purple and then mature into a coppery brown colour. When mature, the branches tend to curve upward, giving it an elegant appearance. Because of its general shape and colour it makes a unique choice for a Christmas tree.

Oriental Spruce does not do well in windy conditions, especially cold, harsh winter winds. For best results, plant in a protected area.
