Picea breweriana is frequently regarded as being one of the most beautiful of all conifers.
Its weeping habit will take some years to develop from a young plant, then its long pendulous branches appear like curtains. It deserves space to slowly develop as a feature in the garden, and would look outstanding planted behind and pond or lake. After rainfall, all the needles glisten stunningly, holding thousands of little water droplets.
High rainfall areas seem to suit this tree well, and it is perfectly adapted to cope with heavy snowfalls, as its drooping foliage readily sheds ice and snow.
