Answer: Two to four hours of sunlight isn't enough for an Alberta Spruce. It won't grow well and you'll be disappointed in its appearance. A better choice for the site would be Cupressus sempervirens 'Glauca' (Blue Italian Cypress). This tree is a columnar evergreen, 25'high by X 4' wide. It has blue-green foliage.
Best wishes with your landscape!
