Deep Valley Tree Farm
Picea glauca densata (Black Hills Spruce)
The white spruce are similar to all spruces inasmuch as they are tall and symmetrical, and are cone shaped. This variety is slow growing, and is 35 - 45 feet in height. They are sometimes called Black Hills Spruce. The needles are pale green, 3/4 inch long, and end in a horny point. The pictures below are actually not the variety glauca, but the species. They grow from zones 3 - 6. They have pale red/yellow flowers, and cylindrical cones, about 1.5 inches by 1/2 inch in size. They do well in full sun, but will tolerate light shade.
