The Ezo Spruce is a wonderful variety of spruce prized in Japan for its tiny needles and tight growth. They are difficult to come by in the United States. They are a slower growing species that thrives in harsh cold climates.  Grown from seed at Kaede Bonsai-en, these trees are well established in 2 1/4" containers.

Common Name(s): Ezo Spruce, Ezomatsu

Latin Name: Picea jezoensis

Type: Evergreen Conifer

Native to: Northern Japanese Islands, parts of Russia and North Korea

Climate: Unclear, but hardy to at least Zone 5 and possibly significantly colder. This is a species that thrives in rough winter conditions and will need a true dormancy. They seem to do well in Maryland summers that regularly exceed 90-95° F for a few weeks, but it is possible that in hotter southern climates they could struggle.

Care: Pinch shoots back in the spring to promote tighter budding. They enjoy a drier soil mix cut with components like pumice and lava rock to allow adequate drainage.

Size: 2-4"
