p. pungens fastigiata snow load??

14 years ago

this past fall I planted a 4ft columnar blue spruce. first snow of the season had the branches completely loaded down, peeled over like a bannana peel, and touching the ground. I thought they were all broken for sure. i knocked the snow off, pulled the branches up, and wrapped the tree with netting to give it support.

is this what I can expect from this species? I expected it to be much more snow hearty.
