Arctos Siberian Spruce

Picea obovata ‘Arctos’ is a befitting name of this Siberian spruce. Big bears and the trees both thrive in the extremely harsh environments of the northern reaches of the world. Having a very unique bluish green color, it is a pleasant sight in bleak, barren areas. Growing not too fast and not too slow, it has short needles, is tough, and durable. Makes a good cornerstone specimen or focal point.

Mature size: 20’H x 10’W. Grows 12-15″ per year. Broad Upright. Zone 2. Bluish Green. Conifer. Full Sun.
