Picea farreri is a species of conifer in the pine family, Pinaceae. It is known by the common name Farrer's spruce.[1][2] It is native to China, where it is known only from Yunnan, and to Myanmar.[1]

This tree can reach 35 meters tall.[2] It grows on limestone soils in cool, wet mountainous habitat.[1]

Picea farreri is named after the plant collector Reginald Farrer who travelled extensively in China and what was then Burma.
