Ornamental Features

Dwarf Norway Spruce is a dwarf conifer which is primarily valued in the landscape or garden for its ornamental globe-shaped form. It has bluish-green evergreen foliage which emerges light green in spring. The needles remain bluish-green throughout the winter.

Landscape Attributes

Dwarf Norway Spruce is a dense multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a more or less rounded form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

Planting & Growing

Dwarf Norway Spruce will grow to be about 5 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 6 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 50 years or more.

This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
