This is a miniature tree which grows very slowly and stays in a neat, formal cone shape, rarely needing to be pruned. Use dwarf alberta spruce in borders and formal groupings. Many people use them as foundation plantings, to anchor corners, and in rock gardens. Dwarf alberta spruce is considered a novelty plant and often grown in containers. They are frequently decorated with tiny ornaments and bells at christmastime. With its natural tendency to stay small, dwarf alberta spruce is very popular for bonsai.
