I know they are hard to find but does anyone know where to buy some.

I know Jim Doyle at Naturesway has had them in the past.  Def. worth a checkout.

Brent has good descriptions in the catalog which discusses the difference between Picea glennhii and Picea jezoensis hondoensis, both of which are sometimes referred to as Ezo spruce.

Best,

If you are looking for more developed material, I believe there are some very nice ones in Michael Hagadorn's garden.  He has posted pictures of several on his blog, though I have no idea what he has available atm.

Contact Brent if interested, ask him about availability and tell him your budget.

Brent states that the Sakhalin Spruce, Picea glenhii is difficult to grow. It may however like your climate. Jezoensis is a little more adaptable. Glenhii has smaller needles but they are both sweet!

There is a Sakhalin in the National Collection that is one of my favorite trees of all time.
