Meyers Spruce Plug Transplants
[a.k.a. Chinese Blue Spruce, Meyer's Spruce]
The Meyers Spruce is a medium growing, dark-green spruce with short needles. 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 growth rate [which is not fast but results in fairly dense growth] is well-suited to applications such as windbreaks and privacy screens.
Meyer's Spruce are native to China, but they are very commonly grown and planted throughout the United States, and as far south as Northern Georgia and Northern Texas due to their drought tolerance. At higher elevations they can survive even farther south, although they may not flourish as they do farther north. They need full sun, but can grow in both light and heavier soils, as well as 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.
