[a.k.a. Chinese Blue Spruce, Meyer’s Spruce, Myers Spruce]
The Meyers Spruce plug seedling is a dark-green spruce with short needles and a slightly slower than average growth rate for a spruce. This slower growth rate results in very dense growth, making Meyers Spruce very well-suited to applications such as windbreaks and privacy screens. 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. The conical shape, blue-green color and excellent needle retention make Meyers Spruce plug seedlings ideal as an ornamental.
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 Meyers Spruce plug seedlings can survive even farther south. This species prefers full sun, but can grow in both light and heavier soils and a wide range of soil acidity. They reach a mature height of only about 40 feet, making them ideal for locations where overhead power lines and other obstructions are an issue.
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 🙂
