The perfect gift - If you need a fast, perfect gift for just about anyone on your list, consider these cheerful live trees! These are a miniature version of the mighty Spruce tree - and they are shaped just like a little Christmas tree!

These special Holiday plants will come shipped in a festive red pot. No need for wrapping! Dwarf Alberta Spruce trees are cold-weather plants that prefer Zones 3 - 6, where it gets pretty nippy outside in winter.

The fragrant Spruce scent fills your home or when these cheerful trees are brushed against, so place one temporarily in your home to decorate for the holidays, or where they thrive - outside as front entry or decorations in pots by your home’s steps.

Planting and Application:

Use it as a cute little decoration for the season. Place it near a cool window that gets bright sunlight but keep it away from air vents and drafts. Add just add enough moisture as needed throughout the holiday season, but please don't let it sit in standing water.

A fun addition to the garden as an accent and focal point tree. Stand a pair at your front door to welcome guests, decked out with ribbons and bows, or let them glow with lights! It’s up to you!

  • Miniature evergreen tree perfect for the holidays
  • Festive red pot & ready to decorate
  • Indoors for the holidays, then outside for a long-lasting landscape plant
  • Plant in larger pots as a permanent outdoor entry decoration
  • Easy to care for & slower-growing (less maintenance)

#ProPlantTips for Care:

If you'd like to plant this in your yard, you can try by acclimating your Spruce to the outside temperatures in your area by moving it gradually to colder and colder locations by placing your plant in an unheated porch or garage where it has a couple of weeks to begin to remain dormant for the wintertime. If your ground is frozen outside, then it can be stored for the winter months in a cool garage by the window, or on a porch. Water it periodically only if needed. If the ground isn't frozen, go ahead and plant it out, water the soil and cover the plant with burlap or even straw or leaves to prevent windburn.

  • Full bright sun & moderate watering needs
  • Very cold hardy
  • Temporary indoor & easy care outdoor landscape tree
  • Great Holiday Gift Plant
