Picea glauca

White spruce, also called Canadian spruce and Black Hills spruce, is a symmetrical, compact, and slow growing evergreen conifer.  This tree prefers sun, but tolerates some shade and can establish in the shade of other species. This tough tree can withstand wind, heat, cold, drought, and crowding making it appropriate for a hedge row or an excellent specimen to try at a tough site, but it performs best in cool areas with sun and good air circulation. Needles may range from bright green to bluish green.
