White Spruce

Superior seasonal colour makes 'Rainbow's End' a brilliant addition to the summer garden. A second flush of growth transforms the light-green, conical tree in mid-summer into a beacon of bright lemon-yellow. Although similar in size and shape to 'Conica,' the extraordinary colour of this tree offers a dramatic summer surprise. Rainbow's End was found as a mutation at Iseli Nursery in 1978. It is very slow growing.

Growing and Maintenance Tips

Rainbow's End appreciates moist but well drained soil in full sun. An occasional blast from the garden hose during summer will increase pest resistance. A winter wrap is essential to prevent browning and dieback.
