    I have a customer who I bid the job and she wanted a Fat Albert Spruce(Picea pungens), Now she thinks the spruce will be too big for the spot.
    What else would be a choice for the area. It is in full sun and the area is not too big but I thought the fat albert spruce was a good choice.

    Dwarf Mugo Pine, Mountain Fire Japanese Andromeda, Dwarf Globe Norway Spruce. Personally, I like using Fat Alberts whenever I can. Tell her you'll tip prune it and keep it to the size and shape that she'd like.......
