Propagation: Oriental spruce can be grown from seed, which requires no pretreatment.

Spruces tend to be difficult to start from cuttings and success rates are usually low.
Native to: Asia minor
Notes for Identification: Source: floridata - with its extremely dense foliage and elegant habit, oriental spruce is an excellent specimen conifer for medium sized to large areas. Many professional landscapers consider it superior to the more commonly cultivated norway spruce. Use oriental spruce as a lawn specimen or massed for screening. The dwarf cultivars are excellent in hedges and as anchors for foundation plantings and shrub borders. Oriental spruce has a powerful and formal shape, and is perhaps the most graceful of the 30 spruce species cultivated in the u. S.
