Planting detail for Weeping Norway Spruce - Knowledgebase Question

I purchased a weeping norway spruce from Home Depot. I'm not able to find out how large it will grow, how wide it will get? I'm trying to determine the appropriate location for it.

Although often seen planted between a house and walk as a foundation plant, this is actually a specimen tree for a fairly large area such as a lawn. Over time it grows quite big and looks sculptural and elegant as it spreads outward -- plan on eventually allowing ten feet across at least. It will grow as tall as it is staked and trained prior to being allowed to spread horizontally, typically about three feet high or so. Enjoy!
