Picea pungens var. Glacier Blue

The Colorado Blue Spruce is the iconic tree of Christmas. This tree is native to the Rocky Mountain states of the US, so needless to say, it thrives in Colorado. These trees grow to be 30-60 feet tall with a narrower width than other conifersonly growing 10-20 feet wide. he unique blue/green/silver color of the tree makes it stand out year-round, especially in the winter.

The Colorado Blue Spruce makes for both a great landscaping tree, privacy screen, or windbreak if several are planted in a row. It is cold hardy, drought-tolerant, and low maintenance, requiring little more than planting it and watching it grow (no pruning required). It can be planted in either full sun or partial sun. The growth rate ranges from 10 to 18 inches per year which are fast for a conifer. Birds, rabbits, and other small animals love the shelter it provides, but you don’t have to worry about them (or deer, for that matter) nibbling on the tree. This tree also grows perfectly shaped pinecones.
