The Story

White Spruce is a native tree of northern forests that can reach 100 feet or more in the wild. As with many conifers, “witch’s brooms” of congested growth may appear occasionally on White Spruce branches that give rise to new dwarf forms. If a witch’s broom sets seed, the offspring may be dwarfed as well. This is probably what prompted the birth of the Dwarf Alberta Spruce (a seedling of the White Spruce) in Alberta, Canada in the late 1800s. In 1904, two representatives of the Harvard Arboretum stumbled upon the lucky find, and the new tree went on to become one of the most popular landscape trees the world has ever known.

The Details

A pair of Alberta Spruces framing the front door of a home has been done so many times it’s almost a cliché, but frame an entrance with two Dwarf Alberta Spruce Spiral Topiary Trees and you have something fresh, bold, and exciting. A pair of Spiral Albertas will give you fresh greenery right outside your door and a sculptural element that will enliven your entryway garden all year long.
