Why We Love It

With silvery-blue needles and a rounded shape the Picea sitchensis 'Papoose' is an ideal ornamental shrub for your garden.

This compact evergreen shrub begins as a small round ball of pale green and silver needled branches.

Over the years the 'Papoose' can grow to approximately 3 m tall and develop into a classic pointed cone shape.

It will take a while to reach its maximum height as it's a slow grower but that also means it's very low-maintenance with little to no pruning required.

Position-wise it's a great accompaniment to your more colourful perennials and has showy foliage all year round.

The decorative pot is sold separately.

How to Plant

Picea's are low and slow-growing, so grows well in both containers and in the ground. You'll need your gloves for this one due to its needles.

Into the Ground

Grab your gloves, some tree and shrub compost, a watering can and of course a spade or trowel.

  1. Pop the gloves on and water the potted pine well.
  2. Dig a hole that's twice the size of the rootball.
  3. Mix in some tree and shrub compost.
  4. Place the bare rootball in the hole and fill in around it.
  5. Cover the rootball and firm up.
  6. Water well and mulch in winter.

Into a Pot

Take a large container that's twice as large as the rootball, as well as your gloves, trowel, tree and shrub compost and a watering can.

  1. Pull on your gloves to prevent any needle-related accidents and soak the potted pine in its old pot.
  2. Mix garden soil and compost together in the new container.
  3. Remove the old pot and position the pine in the new one.
  4. Fill in around it with more soil and compost and pat down.
  5. Give it a drink and remember to mulch in winter.
