Native to the Western United States, Picea breweriana is very architectural and generally considered to be one the most beautiful of all spruces. It has graceful, weeping, branchlets covered in dark blue-green needles and this dramatically pendulous foliage makes it a fantastic garden tree.
Picea breweriana can be slow growing when young and so although very handsome once established is not plant for instant gratification.
