Dwarf Alberta Spruce is quite common in the garden center trade. It is a slowgrowing densely compact conical conifer with a formal look due to its dense symmetrical form. This cultivar is useful in a dwarf conifer garden, as a foundation plant, used on either side of a landscape element (e.g., entryway, art work, sign) to frame that element, as a short hedge, in a container (at least for several years before it gets too big), as a focal point, or as an accent plant.
