The Q&A Archives: Dwarf Alberta Spruce

Question: Can Dwarf Alberta Spruce be planted in Full Sun in Roseville Ca 96551 ?

The card says 6 hrs or more of Sun but a local nursery person said my Dwarf Alberta Spruce will burn in Roseville, CA Sun.

I purchased 5 Dwarf Alberta Spruce this week at HomeDepot 95661... I have not planted them yet but I plan to plant this week.

Thank You!

Answer: In the Sacramento Valley, you will want to plant your new spruce in morning sun and afternoon shade. Summer heat and humidity are not to its liking, and the foliage can burn in hot afternoon sunshine.
