Conifer Slope

This magnificent collection of cone-bearing plants was chosen for their attractive habits and colorful foliage. Mature Norway spruces from the Perkins era, mostl likely planted a century ago, create a backdrop for a tapestry of blue, green, gray and gold foliage.

Oriental Spruce

Oriental Spruce (Picea orientalis 'Skylands')

The dense growth and pyramidal habit of the oriental spruce are enhanced by the soft golden hues of 'Skylands', a yellow-leaved cultivar. Native to Turkey and Caucasus. Tolerates poor soils.
