Silver spruce is a beautiful coniferous plant that reaches 30 m in height in its natural environment, but in your garden will rarely reach so much. Picea Pungens originates from the west coast of the United States and is very resistant to cold. Its needles have a grayish-blue color, and its wood is gray, their pyramidal shape. It can be pruned, but moderately, and the new growths.
Silver spruce grows well in fertile, acidic, well-drained soil. Prefers sunny places, but can tolerate light shade. In the first years of planting the soil should be kept wet and no drought should be allowed. It prefers a colder climate and would suffer in the humid heat of the south.
