If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily.

With a bushy, irregular canopy, the spruce pine is a unique option for customizing landscapes.
On young spruce pines, the bark is soft but develops into flat plates over time; however, the upper half of the tree and branch retains the smooth surface. As the trunk grows, it begins to twist around itself, creating an artistic underbody reaching up into the canopy. While there are many common pine trees, the spruce pine is known for the small branches that grow between larges branches and the twisted design it takes on overtime.
Spruce pines are important to wildlife. Squirrels eat the pine seeds, and other small mammals are known to use the tree as shelter. The spruce pine grows pinecones that drop during the fall and are known for their evergreen needles that run along the branches.
Young spruce pines can be used as Christmas trees, while fully matured trees are perfect for parking lot buffers and shade trees in local parks.
Known for their urban tolerance, the spruce pine is an excellent option for residential streets as they are sturdy and are easy to maintain.
Find a sunny, open space for the spruce pine, or keep it potted and trim it carefully to create a relaxing bonsai for the home or office. While the spruce pine can do well in most soils, it will thrive best in nutrient-rich soil that retains moisture. This is the key to longevity and mature growth.
