A relative of the Colorado Spruce trees, it remains dwarf, only growing 8 ft. tall in 30 years. It may only grow from 3-6 ft. wide at maturity making it very adaptable to container growing and useful in very confined spaces. It requires a site protected from cold, dry winter winds which can burn the foliage severely. Grow in sun to shade, well-drained soil and water twice-a-week. MUST be watered monthly in dry winters.
