Spruce

Picea

Holding their dense branches aloft, spruce trees grow into perfectly shaped pyramids that become the grace note of any landscape. Most spruces thrive in cold-winter climates and their thick boughs provide a habitat for winter birds. Many varieties develop colorful reddish or purple cones in spring in contrast with the dark green or blue-green needles. Spruces thrive in cool, moist soil but can also tolerate some drought.
