Dwarf Norway Spruce

Dwarf Norway Spruce is a miniature evergreen shrub.  This compact evergreen attracts birds and is deer resistant.  This shrub naturally grows in a globe form.  Mainly installed as a stand-alone plant, Dwarf Norway Spruce can also be installed as a low-lying hedge. The shrub grows about four feet wide and tall when it is mature. Since it is a slow grower, it may take quite a few years to reach maturity.

This evergreen shrub naturally grows in a globe form. This shrub also prefers areas that are partly shaded to part sun. Pruning is not necessary unless you are removing dead or damaged sections of the plant. Formal trimming takes away from the natural look of the evergreen. Similar in appearance to Bird’s Nest Spruce, this evergreen is just as hearty.

Dwarf Norway is not salt tolerant, meaning salt will damage this plant. Salt damage is irreversible since this is not a deciduous shrub. Make sure that you are installing this plant in an area that will not see salt.  If you are looking for a well-rounded evergreen to add to your landscape, consider adding Dwarf Norway Spruce to your project. Evergreen plants always give your project eye appeal in the winter when deciduous plants are defoliated.
