Variegated Black Hills Spruce - Picea mariana 'Aureovariegata'
From a distance, this unusual and rare dwarf conifer looks like a yellow-gold tipped blue Colorado Spruce, and has been grown for years as Picea glauca 'Aurea'. However, now it is considered a Picea mariana. Growing up to 6 inches per year, you can expect this tree to be 5 ft tall in 10 years. Very hardy to zone 3. Pyramidal habit. A seedling selection.
