The perfect office plant through the Holidays and beyond! While it prefers a sunnier situation the Alberta Spruce is an extremely slow, adaptable grower. Only gaining about 2 inches a year and having a naturally compact growth pattern, you can be sure that this plant won’t be taking up your time with extraneous pruning while still adding the serene vibe that evergreens always do!
