Planting

Make sure the root ball of the beautiful Colorado Spruce 'Lucky Strike' is well-moistened by placing it in a bucket of lukewarm water overnight.

Plant the root ball at the appropriate depth, the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Place your Colorado Spruce 'Lucky Strike' in a sunny or partially shaded area.

The Colorado Spruce 'Lucky Strike' is perfect for the garden

Colorado Spruce 'Lucky Strike' is a wonderful plant. This conifer doesn't grow fast, so there is always a spot to be found for it. For example, it goes well in the rock garden or heather garden. This strong conifer is also wonderful as a solitary plant in a bed of ground cover.

Care

The Colorado Spruce requires very little attention and is easy to maintain. During the first month after planting avoid the roots from drying out. Once the Piceans pungens ‘Lucky Strike’ becomes established it will tolerate drought quite well. It only needs extra water during dry periods. Pruning is not necessary since this conifer already has a beautiful shape.
