How to Use Dwarf Serbian Spruce in the Landscape

A single plant can be used as a commanding specimen at a point of transition in your design. Place one at the start of a path, or bend in the border.

Use at the corner of your home to anchor the foundation planting. Enlarge the mulched bed to include it, as well.

Partner Dwarf Serbian Spruce with nearly any perennial or smaller flowering shrub. They'll add dynamic color and a dependable, tightly held form that looks great all year-long.

Try several of them in an informal grouping for an island bed in your lawn. Surround an airy Japanese Maple with a backdrop of these muscular shrubs.

Place them in enormous outdoor containers with seasonal Fillers and Spillers. Containerized shrubs become "plant pets" with low needs, but high style.

You'll achieve a sophisticated look that you'll never grow tired of. Just be prepared for questions from visitors who'll be impressed with their substantial charm.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Dwarf Serbian Spruce needs a planting site with well-drained soil, and at least four hours of direct sunlight a day. In these conditions, they'll give you few concerns.

Mulch around the plant to create a protected space. Underplant with Vinca, Sedum or other groundcovers at planting time.

Apply a medium amount of water on a regular basis for best results. This is especially important for plants in containers and during extended drought.

Always give evergreens a long drink in fall as you head into winter. Their needles appreciate hydration for the long winter to ward off wind damage.

Pruning is usually not necessary. However, if any corrections are needed, take care of them in early spring before it starts to grow.

One of the world's best, this unique, dwarf evergreen holds your ticket to a magnificent landscape. Order Dwarf Serbian Spruce today!
