Spiral Dwarf Alberta Spruce In Landscape

It’s not unusual to find dwarf Alberta spruce (Picea glauca ‘Conica’) sold in various forms. In the nursery trade, this type of pruned spruce is known as a topiary spiral. Its unusual silhouette makes it a good choice for a focal point shrub in the landscape. When adding dwarf Alberta spruce to your yard, choose a spot with full to part sun and well-drained soil.
