Dwarf Alberta Spruce By Path

Garden Path

Dwarf Alberta spruce makes a great choice for marking the head of a path or walkway. Here (left side of path) it pairs beautifully with its counterpart across the path, a clump of zebra grass (Miscanthus sinensis ‘Zebrinus’). Dwarf Alberta spruce will grow in part shade, thriving beneath high canopy trees that deliver filtered sunlight. In cold winter regions, give dwarf Alberta spruce protection from drying winter winds and hot afternoon sun by siting it on an eastern or northern exposure.
