Anyone ever tried black hills spruce as bonsai in the SF Bay Area? Saw a photo of a gorgeous group planting using them and thought I might do one too.
But they’re USDA Zone 3-6 and SF area is 9-10. I hear white pine need colder winters and therefore don’t do particularly well here (the alternative being black pine), I wonder if the same issue would be likely with black hills spruce as with white pines.
That said any suggestions of a tree that might do well in the SF Bay Area if the this spruce won’t?
