The Little Gem Spruce Tree is a wonder plant and a wonderful gift. It forms a perfect spherical evergreen form in rich green, on an upright trunk. The wonder is that it is naturally dwarf and never needs clipping, yet always look perfectly spherical and neat. It is the perfect answer for anyone who wants to add formal touches to their garden, perhaps at an entrance area, or along a walkway, but is afraid of all the clipping that is usually required. This is a tree that will grow in cold areas down to minus 30 degrees, and also grow well in warm and hot regions too. It should be planted in full sun for the best growth, with some midday shelter in very hot states. It will grow easily in most kinds of soil and is drought resistant when established.
