Meyer Spruce are a wonderful dark-green spruce with short needles and a slightly slower than average growth rate. Although many people want fast growing trees, this slower growth rate results in very dense growth. This makes Meyer Spruce very well-suited to applications such as windbreaks and privacy screens.

In terms of shape and needles and other characteristics, this species 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 Meyer Spruce plug seedlings ideal for ornamental plantings.

Picea meyeri 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 Meyer 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.
