The Missouri Botanical Garden web page for Picea omorika [link below] says it is “One of the most attractive spruces”. (Rick’s note: I have one in my own front yard, and I agree wholeheartedly). Few natural pests or diseases affect Picea omorika other than White Pine Weevil, which is easily controlled with over the counter pesticides.
Picea omorika plug seedlings are fast-growing, do well in full sun, and reach a height of up to 60 feet with a spread of 20 feet or more at the base. They prefer richer soils, but can do well in sandier soils if watered a couple of times per week if no rain.Individual Packaging Options:
