I was interested to read today's article about Alberta Spruce. The article failed to mention that the Alberta Spruce is a mutation of the common white spruce, P.Glauca. There are lots of them planted here and I see many of them. There are a number of them in the local cemetery and a high percentage of those are reverting and part of the growth is the white spruce. It makes the form unattractive to my eye. They are also plagued with spider mite here. I will take a couple of pictures of the reversions in the morning.......

Please, where is the article to which you are referring? Did it appear here in the new Gardening Ideas Forum? or was it elsewhere on the NGA site?

Thank You!
