Pyramidal evergreen with luminous blue needles. Initial branching appears somewhat sparse and spiky but with age branches fill in to form uniform but airy shape. Makes a great park or lawn specimen.
Spectacular pyramidal evergreen with graceful arching branches. Unique separation between layers of branches makes the arching habit particularly noticeable and dramatic. Finely textured needles range from blue to green to silver. Must be seen to be truly appreciated.
Takes the unique beauty of deodara to another level. Same graceful arching branches as species but yellow coloration is dramatic. Yellow tint can vary along the branch with brightest color at tips. Color remains year round, it does not fade in summer or fall. Spectacular specimen.
For those of you seeking an Italian Cypress, this is the tree for you. With its tight growing habit, year round screening, and soft blue green foliage, it is a great alternative.
A very popular spruce, and justifiably so. Dense, pyramidal shape opens up over time. Branches arch with age. A good urban tree, tolerates a wide range of soils, and air pollution. Hardy to Zone 3b-7.
Little known spruce variety that should be far more popular. Densely pyramidal tree that is often three times as tall as it is wide. Silver-green needles, small, persistent cones, and interesting silvery bark. Makes a great screening or specimen plant. Very tolerant of ocean salt spray.
Dark green needles are the shortest of any spruce. A slow but steady grower – typically two to three times as tall as it is wide – one of the better large spruces for tight spaces. The most shade tolerant of the spruce family. Makes an excellent specimen or screening plant.
Dense tight pyramidal shape well past middle age, opens up a bit at maturity. Very narrow form can create an exclamation point in the landscape – it is dramatic and eye-catching. Short, distinctly horizontal branches. Silver-blue to green needles. Very tolerant of ocean salt spray.
One of the most popular spruces, best known for its grey-blue needles. New growth is a luminous silver blue and is tree’s signature feature. Horizontal branches droop slightly with age. Tight pyramidal form. Makes a great specimen and screening plant. Justifies it’s popularity.
Picturesque pine that is underused and underappreciated. Slow growing, densely pyramidal when young, more open with age. Soft needles are similar in feel and texture to white pine. The combination of soft green needles and tight pyramidal shape makes for a unique specimen. Hardy to Zone 3b-7.
This spectacular variety of white pine is unlike any other pine. Needles are blue with prominent white stripes. Conical when young it develops a wide spreading, flat-topped habit with age. Makes a great specimen. The kind of plant that makes Halka Nurseries so special. This is a completely different plant with age than it is […]
The most popular cultivated pine. Grows quickly, makes a great screening plant, good for wind breaks. An excellent lawn or park tree. Retains a soft texture throughout its lifetime, regardless of how large it grows.
Columnar version of the classic eastern white pine. With age the form opens and becomes narrowly oval, with a pyramidal crown. Distinctly upright branches differ from horizontal or drooping branches of species. Soft texture. Very interesting form of the most popular pine species.
Dense, mounded with age. A wonderful variation of the classic white pine. Small rounded shape in young plants is deceiving. In time it takes on a beautiful billowing, almost cloud-like shape. Soft texture remains but no two plants are ever the same. A wonderful rock garden, poolscape or specimen plant.
Open and irregular shape, no two trees are the same, almost has the habit of a bonsai and makes a great specimen tree. Waxy dark green leaves. Very adaptable. Very tolerant of ocean salt spray.
