Landscape Attributes

Bruns Weeping Serbian Spruce is an evergreen tree with a strong central leader and a rounded form and gracefully weeping branches. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

Bruns Weeping Serbian Spruce is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Accent
  • Vertical Accent

Planting & Growing

Bruns Weeping Serbian Spruce will grow to be about 15 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. It has a low canopy, and should not be planted underneath power lines. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 80 years or more.

This tree should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments, and will benefit from being planted in a relatively sheltered location. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
