Picea Orientalis Aureospicata also known as Gold Tipped Oriental Spruce, Aureospicata Oriental or Yellow-tipped Caucasian Spruce. Picea Orientalis Aureospicata is an evergreen conifer coveted for its unusual growth habit and dramatic young foliage. In the spring, the new bright yellow needles appear on the tips of the branches bearing mature foliage, creating an eye-catching contrast that will offer interest well into the summer, when the vibrant young growth matures into a deep green. This striking display is what gives the conifer its common names - Gold Tipped Oriental Spruce and Yellow-tipped Caucasian Spruce.
Tall and stately, Aureospicata Oriental boasts a natural pyramidal form, with lower branches of the tree creating a “full skirt” effect by arching out and down.
