Picea abies, commonly called Norway spruce, is a large pyramidal evergreen conifer that is native to the mountains of northern and central Europe east to the Urals. It is the classic Christmas tree. In its native European habitat, it typically matures to 100-150' (occasionally to 200') tall.

It has been widely planted in cool and temperate regions of North America where it typically matures to a much shorter 40-60' (less frequently to 100') tall. It is noted for its rapid growth. Primary branches are slightly upturned but secondary branches become pendulous as the tree matures.

Branches are clad with spirally-arranged, four-sided, needle-like, deep green leaves which are attached at their bases to tiny pegs. Cylindrical seed-bearing cones (to 9" long) are pendulous. In excess of 150 cultivars (mostly dwarf) have been named over the years.

Easily grown in average, acidic, evenly moist, well-drained soils in full sun. Performs well in rich sandy soils. Prefers cool summer climates. Established plants have some tolerance for dryish soils. Evergreen trees for large lawns, parks, or woodland areas. Effective screen or windbreak in cold northern climates.  Hardiness zones 2-7.
