The Norway Spruce is a fast growing, dark-green spruce with short needles. It’s pleasant appearance makes it ideal as an ornamental, and it’s growth rate is well-suited to applications such as windbreaks and privacy screens, although its foliage is not as dense as some other species.
Norway Spruce are the dominant evergreen in Europe, and although they are not native to the US, they are commonly planted throughout the Northeast and as far south as Tennessee. They can survive even farther south if planted at higher elevation. However, they are best suited to temperate climates, need full sun, and prefer richer soils. They can reach a jaw-dropping height of 200 feet, but most max out at a “merely impressive” 100 feet.
PLANT IN RECORD TIME:
Watch how to plant these evergreen seedling plugs faster and with less effort than any other type of “bare root” evergreen seedling. With just a garden cart or wheelbarrow, a jug or three of water, a cordless drill, any old/dull/rusty 1 inch drill bit you have lying around [your own drill bit, we do not provide a free auger with plug seedlings], you can realistically plant at least one plug seedling per minute. Your back will thank us later 🙂
