Picea brachytyla
Picea brachytyla
Native Region: Central and Western China
Zone Range: 08-09
Preferred Climate: Temperate
Harvest Date: Sunday 25 September, 2016

This conical tree will become more dome shaped in great age, taking on a decidedly uncommon appearance. In youth the tree is conical with upward arching branches and pendent branchlets. Very attractive conifer, and still rare in the west.

The common name comes from Charles Sargent, the man who helped to introduce this wonderful species of spruce to western gardens.

Sow seed in containers in a coldframe in autumn or spring. Cold stratification may improve germination if seed is planted in the spring. Grow on in deep moist but well-drained, neutral to acidic soil in full sun. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.

Harvest Date: Sunday 25 September, 2016
