Picea orientalis 'Skylands'
One of the most attractive conifers available! The exterior needles are bright yellow in full sun or yellow-green in part shade, which contrast well against the interior needles of green. The foliage may burn in full sun locations in hot summer climates, so we recommend morning exposure and well-drained soil for best performance. Generally it prefers cooler, less humid climates, but requires some protection from cold winter winds in the north. In spring, attractive red pollen cones provide interesting and showy contrast with the yellow foliage. (Grafted) [35’T x 15’W, Zones 4-7]
