Picea orientalis--Oriental Spruce

Oriental spruce grows 100 feet tall but is not as hardy as norway spruce. The tree is a slow grower, narrowly pyramidal, and has short needles. Sheltered locations make the best sites.

There are several cultivars but these are not common: 'Aurea'--golden leaves in early summer; 'Aureo-spicata'-- golden young shoots and leaves; 'Gowdy'--extremely upright; 'Nana'--dwarf; 'Pygmaea'--dwarf.
