Serbian spruce. Very rare in the wild. This fully hardy evergreen conifer will grow quickly to form a narrow and handsome ornamental tree, with needles that are striking blue-green above and mid-green below. Its very narrow habit make it unusually suited as an ornamental tree in even quite compact gardens.
Picea omorika was widely distributed in Europe before the last Ice Age, but is now confined to a population of only 1,000 individuals in a nature reserve in Serbia and it is considered a threatened species in the wild
Introduced into cultivation in 1881. Picea omorika is fully hardy and tolerates a wide range of soil conditions. Final height is likely to be in the range of 10-20m, depending on the fertility and moisture content of the soil.
