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

A cultivar/sport of the common Picea glauca var. albertiana 'Conica' with summer interest. This plant flushes a light green burst on its' first flush of Spring Growth, then later in early summer, it's second flush is a bright golden color providing contrast against the green foliage below. Supposedly a bit hardier of a selection/cultivar than others, with Picea glauca var. albertiana 'Jean's Dilly' being another of the hardier cultivars. A solid, gardenworthy selection.

This variety species of White Spruce can be prone to scorch in very hot climates. Spider mites too can be a problem. Never plant any cultivar of this species variety next to or up against a brick wall or any wall where heat will be reflected. There are some fantastic cultivars in this group of plants to be had.
