Great Plant Picks - For drama in the garden, it is hard to beat golden Caucasian spruce. This stately evergreen has short, dark green needles on its stiff branches. These explode with brilliant chartreuse new growth in spring. The contrast between the old and new growth is spectacular! This wonderful display remains effective until midsummer, when the spring growth matures to a deep forest green. The tree grows into a narrowly pyramidal shape, with lower branches arching gracefully downwards to create a full skirt about the tree. Its slow growth make it a very well-mannered conifer for the urban landscape. Give it plenty of space to fully develop into a beautiful tree. This spruce is perfect for use as a specimen or focal point. This spruce grows best in full sun. It prefers a well-drained or sandy soil, but will tolerate clay. Once established it is drought tolerant. It has a strong resistance to insects and diseases. Notably, it is especially resistant to the highly damaging conifer aphid. Little pruning is needed to keep it looking its best, only to remove any dead or broken branches.
