I want to buy a dwarf conifer (or is it a spruce)? that I have seen alot. It is very dense, grows to about 6 feet high and is very pyramidal in shape. They are pretty common now but I don't know what its name is. I live pretty far out in the country and may have to drive some distance to buy this, so I want to "let my fingers do the walking" first and see if anyone has them before I drive 40 miles for no reason. Can anyone tell me what this is called? If you have a picture would you post it so I can see if it's the one I'm talking about?

woodspirit, sounds like it might be a dwarf Alberta Spruce. I'll try to get a pic and post for you.

This photo is of my Prairie Fire Crabapple Allee. The evergreens are Picea glauca 'Conica', Dwarf Alberta Spruce. They were about 36" in 1998 when I planted them. I dont think they have grown more than 6 or 8 inches since then. Maybe they are what you are looking for. Donna

Wow, what a beautiful picture. That looks like them, so I will ask for them at a local nursery and see if that is it. Very, very, pretty Allee

The Lowe's by me has some about one foot tall for $4, and ones about 3 feet tall for closer to $40. Being that they only grow a couple of inches per year, I sure understand the price difference! LOL

I got some! At a local nursery, about 15" high for $5 each. I will fertilize them and help them grow a little faster, lol. I appreciate all the help I am getting...
