Details: A monoecious, evergreen native to central Japan with a conical form that can reach 90 feet in height. The form is similar to that of Norway spruce (Pices excelsa) though it is not as destructive to the surrounding environment as this species. It is relatively hardy and very good in cold climates.

It is occasionally used in gardens as a single specimen and is also used as a bonsai species.

Varieties:
Edo Spruce Picea jezoensis (ezo-matsu)
Sakhalin Spruce Picea glehni (aka-ezo-matsu) - native to Hokkaido, northern Korea, Siberia, northern China.
