Norway Spruce (Picea abies)

$45.95$124.95

Picea abies, known as the Norway Spruce, is a large pyramidal evergreen conifer that is native to the mountains of northern and central Europe and east to the Ural mountains. In its native European habitat, it typically matures to 30 to 40 metres tall, occasionally to 60 metres tall. It has been widely planted in cool and temperate regions in Australia, where it typically matures to a much shorter tree reaching 15 to 20 metres tall and, less frequently, 25 metres tall. It is noted for its rapid growth and handsome pyramidal shape. Its primary branches are slightly upturned, but secondary branches become pendulous as the tree matures. The branches are clad with spirally-arranged, four-sided, needle-like, deep green leaves attached at their bases to tiny pegs. There are more than 150 cultivars (mostly dwarf) that have been developed over the years.
It is easily grown in average, acidic, evenly moist, well-drained soils in full sun. It performs well in rich, sandy soils. The Norway Spruce prefers cool summer climates and often grows poorly in warmer climates. Established plants have some tolerance for dryish soils. During dry periods, mulch well. Although used mainly as an ornamental in large lawns, parks or woodland areas,  the Norway Spruce makes an effective screen or windbreak.
