You surely know Conica spruce. Its slow growth and conical habit are the main features that make this plant so common in small gardens and front yards. Now we are introducing its close relative, dwarf white spruce called Rainbow’s End. It grows slower than Conica but makes bright beige new growths in spring, while their second flush in midsummer is almost golden yellow. Very pretty plant that will glow like a beacon in any border.

This spruce is not picky about soil type but hates extremes: too wet or too dry location will mean a slow death of the plant. But grown in equally moist soil it will make a beautiful specimen plant or a nice feature in a small border. It is a great pot plant as it can withstand hard frost it can be placed outside in a container all year round. Just beware of tiny spiders that might come to visit the plant in too dry weather. One application of a suitable insecticide should help you get rid of them. Hardy to about -40°C (USDA zone 3).
