A large, dense evergreen, the Black Hills Spruce is native to South Dakota. While not as drought tolerant as Colorado Spruce, the Black Hills Spruce is more resistant to subzero temperatures. The bright-green needles mature to a blue-green color. Makes a great landscape accent, and can be used as windbreak or screen.
