What is this you say? It's probably the most popular upright growning evergreens used in foundation plantings. You've seen them. You probably have one. They are commonly known as the "Dwarf Alberta Spruce". You see them a lot around the holidays with a bow on it for a little indoor Christmas tree. By the way, if you do buy one for decorations for the holidays, try to limit the time indoors to a maximum of two weeks.
