The dense, endlessly intertwining branches of a Birds Nest Spruce make for one of the most fascinating forms of any conifer. It's almost too easy for the eye to get lost among the complex array of lovely shamrock-green foliage which you will never tire of seeing in a landscape! This variety of Spruce shrub is especially popular in extremely windy and cold climates since it has a natural ability to shelter itself with dense, compact foliage that remains low to the ground. This dwarf conifer shrub uses its nutrients to spread intricate branches horizontally outwards, rather than reaching upwards and gaining in height. This compactness and interesting texture make the Birds Nest Spruce especially well-suited for planting as a low growing evergreen hedge! This compact conifer is also great to use as an accent plant among neighboring deciduous shrubs, ensuring vibrant colors in your landscape throughout the seasons. Birds Nest shrubs are both astonishingly hardy and low-maintenance, withstanding winter temperatures below even -45°F! This shrub reaches a mature height between three and four feet with a spread between five and six feet, and grows best within USDA Cold Hardiness Zones two through nine. If you're looking to add a rarely seen intricate texture to your garden, or if plants in your landscape suffer from high winds combined with cold temperatures, the Birds Nest Norway Spruce is an excellent choice for you!
