[a.k.a. Chinese Blue Spruce, Meyer’s Spruce, Myers Spruce]
The Meyers Spruce is a dark-green spruce with short needles and a slightly slower than average growth rate for a spruce. In terms of shape and needles and other characteristics, it is virtually identical to the Colorado Blue Spruce, but is more resistant to pests and disease. It’s shape, blue-green color and excellent needle retention makes it ideal as an ornamental, and it’s average growth rate results in dense growth, making it well-suited to applications such as windbreaks and privacy screens.
Meyers Spruce are native to China, but are very commonly grown and planted throughout the United States, as far south as Northern Georgia and Northern Texas due to their drought tolerance and ability to grow in warmer zones. At higher elevations they can survive even farther south, although they may not flourish as they do farther north. They prefer full sun, but can grow in both light and heavier soils and a wide range of soil acidity. They can reach a mature height of 40 feet, which is less than other popular spruces, making them ideal for locations where height is an issue.
