Spruce Skylands Golden Oriental
Simply stunning: bright yellow new growth softens to golden-yellow that lasts all year! Add purple cones and an interesting form for a truly outstanding combination of color and form. Plants have irregular forms when young, then become broadly conical at 5-7 years old, and then narrowly conical in maturity. When young, the plants benefit from some shade to avoid foliage burn from hot sun, but given too much shade, their yellow will fade and become more green. Mature plants in full sun boast bright yellow all year.
After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 12 to 15 feet (4 - 5 m) tall and 5 feet (1.6 m) wide, an annual growth rate of 12 to 18 inches (30 - 45 cm).
