(Under construction)
Picea mariana (common name black spruce) is another native conifer. Apparently, spruce beer is made from young shoots of this conifer in Newfoundland.

This is a new acquisition; another gift from Darren of Whistling Gardens.

Picea mariana ‘Aureovariegata’

My plant is just a baby. RHS Encyclopedia of Conifers indicates that Picea mariana ‘Aureovariegata’ is no longer in cultivation apparently based on two relative old conifer books. I saw a beautiful specimen on Whistling Gardens web site.
