Gardeners' Notes:

Positive conifers On Mar 8, 2006, conifers from Rock Island, IL (Zone 5b) wrote:

This is a quicker growing cultivar of Alberta Spruces. It's supposedly a Zone 3a plant, but severe damage will occur if not protected weill or with sufficient snow cover. This plant needs burlaping, etc. in Zone 3 and probably Zone 4a as well. Grows 6" per year. Some plants revert back to green otherwise should it not revert, it's an attractive mottled/patchy blue-green.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Rock Island, Illinois
East Palestine, Ohio
