Favorite or New Plant

Serbian Spruce
Serbian spruce (Picea omorika) is a magnificent spruce that can take your breath away when you see one. The graceful, upturned branches are draped with elegantly hanging branchlets, giving it the look of a woman holding up her skirts in a curtsy. The dark green needles are white on the undersides, and the plant has coffee brown bark that peels off in long plates. Serbian spruces are extremely hardy, asking only for a site with full sun and good drainage. This narrow pyramidal beauty is certainly a plant worth adding to your landscape.
