Black Hills Spruce

Sale price Price $35.00 Regular price

Black Hills is a slow growing spruce and is absolutely charming with its vibrant, dark green foliage with a bluish-gray overcast. It naturally grows to form a symmetrical cone shape with a more dense, compact habit than the white spruce, making it resistant to winter burn. Wildlife will love this tree as it provides nesting sites. Plant as a group for windbreak or screens in the landscape. Good selection for a privacy tree. It also works great as an accent plant in the landscape. A truly cold hardy tree, Black Hills Spruce is resistant to winter injury and performs well, regardless of harsh winter conditions. This tree is very long-lived. In fact, some Black Hills Spruce have lived 150 to 350 years!
