The branches explode with brilliant chartreuse new growth in spring!!

For drama in the garden, it is hard to beat Golden Caucasian Spruce. This stately evergreen has short, dark green needles on its stiff branches. These explode with brilliant chartreuse new growth in spring. The contrast between the old and new growth is spectacular! This wonderful display remains effective until midsummer, when the spring growth matures to a deep forest green. Beautiful reddish purple cones appear on short stalks at the ends of branches turning to brown with age! The tree grows into a narrowly pyramidal shape, with lower branches arching gracefully downwards to create a full skirt about the tree. Its slow growth makes it a very well-mannered conifer for the urban landscape. Give it plenty of space to fully develop into a beautiful tree.
Place golden Caucasian spruce in a location with full sun. It grows best in sandy, well-drained soil with additional water during summer dry spells for the first few summers. Once established it is drought tolerant. It is easy to grow and shows strong resistance to insects and diseases.
Picea orientalis 'Aureospicata' grows slowly to about 10 feet high and 6 feet wide in ten years. It will eventually reach 50 to 60 feet high and about 20 or 30 feet wide.
