White Spruce (Picea Glauca) 30 seeds (#283)

White spruce is a tall evergreen conifer native to the northern United States and Canada. Broadly pyramidal when young, it becomes more columnar with age. Its cones are relatively small. Crushed needles emit a pungent, skunky smell. Many cultivars of white spruce are available, including those with smaller mature sizes or dwarfed and weeping habits.
White spruce grows best in full sun and moist, well-drained soil that is acidic to neutral in pH. It tolerates drought, salt spray, extreme cold, and other environmental stresses. It is useful for screening, hedges, windbreaks and as a specimen. It is also sometimes used as a Christmas tree, although the needles do not persist long once the cut tree dries.
