Papoose Sitka Spruce

  • Dwarf Globe Spruce
  • Wonderful Texture
  • Fun, Unique Plant
  • This dwarf spruce is so cute!

We’ll understand if you want to shower your new Papoose Sitka Spruce (Picea sitchensis ‘Papoose’) with tender loving care. From its diminutive size to its puffy texture and kitten-soft new growth, oh my. You’ll love it!

Several Papoose Sitka Spruce planted together would be extremely effective in an Asian-style Japanese Zen Garden to represent the concept of “family”. Or, use a single specimen as your focal point in a personal Meditation Garden. Use this as a modern foundation planting to soften your house, but stay low enough to limit ongoing maintenance.

Or, use a few to anchor a garden bed. You’ll find a lot of places to tuck these tiny trees into either front yard or backyard landscape design. Partner with groundcovers for an easy, Asian flair. Or use it as a subtle highlight for bright blooming Azalea shrubs.

Extremely slow-growing, the overall profile is a globe-shape. Every chubby little branch ends in a sweet ball of blue-green needles. In the landscape, it will eventually grow into a rounded mound after ten years. Enjoy it!
