I’m also in zone 9 and attempting the same.  
Curious to know the outcome. Did these survive?

Unfortunately, mine did not survive the outdoors.

Mine too died in 2022 after transplant in Zone 9b Santa Clara County.  
Another fully mature Dwarf Alberta Spruce (over 8 feet tall) also in Zone 9b Santa Clara County and over 30 years old has reverted is now growing like a normal white spruce. See Understanding tree reversions at i have pictures of both. You can contact me at
