Dwarf Alberta Spruce
Dwarf Alberta Spruce is a very popular tree because it won’t grow out of hand. It makes an excellent foundation plant in the landscape or as a topiary.
Alberta is slow growing. At 2-5 inches per year it tops out at 6-8 feet tall with a spread of 4-5 feet. Pruning is not required to maintain its conical shape, but if perfect uniformity is desired a light trim in June will provide that.
Plant them where they will receive full sun or part shade.
