The most sought after dwarf conifer. Rather sparse and a little uneven in the first years, it soon becomes dense and spherical and later slightly conical. With age it spreads out and flattens but stays compact. Magnificent silvery blue foliage all year. Hardy and adapts to all types of soil although it prefers fresh and loose soil. Tolerates heat, drought and even urban air better than other Piceas.
Use: the ideal plant for rock gardens and troughs, planted as a freestanding specimen. When trained into a half-standard tree it creates a wonderful effect near houses, in the middle of small plant arrangements, or as a tall feature among lower flowering plants.
