(Picea glauca 'J.W. Daisy's White') This little knockout has a beautiful,
dense conical shape that slowly grows to about 3 feet in 10 years, and each
spring, its new foliage emerges an astonishing creamy white that catches the
eye of any passer-by. The coloring lasts for weeks and gradually becomes a pale
green in summer, thus avoiding sunburn and ensuring it has enough chlorophyll to
sustain itself. This evergreen is very easy to grow! Add some compost to the hole
when you plant it, keep it moist the first season, and then you can pretty much
forget it, except when its gorgeous spring foliage shouts "Look at me!" Grows 2"
a year, so it makes a fabulous container subject.
Zones 3-6, 3' tall, 2' wide in 10
years, sun, 4" pot.
