Picea polita - tigertail spruce

This Japanese spruce has performed well in the piedmont of NC. The tree has thick medium green needles with prominent reddish buds. One characteristic that I have noticed, is that the tree is very late in breaking buds in the spring. This has happened every year. In our climate, the tree has grown about 6 inches each year. It is sited in a full sun location, high on a berm, and receives overhead irragation twice a day.
