Korean Spruce (Picea koraiensis)
Add an effective ornamental evergreen tree to your landscape with conical Korean Spruce trees (Picea koraiensis). Called “jong bi namu” in Korean, these trees produce a lovely flush of pale, celadon-green new growth in springtime.
Once mature, this specimen features purple cones that age to brown. The trunk is a rich, red-brown and the short, dark blue-green needled foliage hugs the symmetrical branch structure.
Cold-hardy evergreen Korean Spruce provides shelter and seeds for birds. It typically requires little care in the right planting site that replicates the mountain settings of its native peninsula.
The Korean Spruce tree performs well in rich, well-drained soil…but can tolerate a variety of soil pH conditions. It prefers at least six hours of sunlight a day.
