Info

In the ongoing taxonomic debate, we have once again changed the way we list this spruce. Previously, following the example of Hortus III, it was listed as P. alcoquiana var. alcoquiana . Now the World Conifer Data Pool has released a new checklist endorsing the use of P. bicolor. A tight, pyramidal conifer, the needles are green above with blue underneath. Possibly this is where the name bicolor originated. It is a beautiful, large growing conifer that is not commonly seen. This is something different for your garden, taxonomically correct or not.
