Rainbow's End Dwarf Spruce

Picea glauca 'Rainbow's End'

Image of Dwarf Spruce

Description

Whoever believes conifers lack seasonal color interest has never seen 'Rainbow's End'. Comparable to Dwarf Alberta Spruce except for color. In spring, the new growth is light green, nothing out of the ordinary. In mid-summer, the second flush is nothing but extraordinary. Bright, creamy-yellow new growth contrasts dramatically against the dark-green older foliage. In late summer the foliage returns to medium green and holds there all winter. the image below was taken on September 16, 2003. Grows about 3-6" per year. Superior seasonal color makes 'Rainbow's End?? a brilliant addition to the summer garden. A second flush of growth transforms the light-green, conical tree in mid-summer into a beacon of bright lemon-yellow. Although similar in size and shape to 'Conica,' the extraordinary color of this tree offers a dramatic summer surprise. Found as a mutation at Iseli Nursery in 1978, it appreciates consistent moisture, good nutrition and an occasional blast from the garden hose during summer to increase pest resistance.

Height: 4-6 Feet Width: 2-4 Feet Form: Upright Flower Color: Red, Yellow Bloom Season: Spring Foliage Color: Green Growth Rate: Slow

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
