Description:

A wonderfully artistic spruce tree with gracefully pendulous branches hanging off a single central leader that arches skyward, making for a very narrow, almost spire-like form; best used as a bold solitary accent in a landscape composition

Ornamental Features:

Weeping Serbian Spruce has attractive dark green foliage with silver undersides which emerges light green in spring. The needles are ornamentally significant but remain dark green through the winter. Neither the flowers nor the fruit are ornamentally significant. The smooth brick red bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape.

Landscape Attributes:

Weeping Serbian Spruce is an evergreen tree with a strong central leader and a rounded form and gracefully weeping branches. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance tree. When pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new growth of the current season, other than to remove any dieback. It has no significant negative characteristics.

Weeping Serbian Spruce is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Vertical Accent
  • Accent

Plant Characteristics:

Weeping Serbian Spruce will grow to be about 30 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 15 feet. It has a low canopy, and should not be planted underneath power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 80 years or more.

This tree should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is quite intolerant of urban pollution, therefore inner city or urban streetside plantings are best avoided, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location.

This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
