Picea pungens 'Fat Albert'

The Fat Albert Blue Colorado Spruce is an evergreen conifer with rich blue needles on a densely branched, naturally pyramidal form. If you were going to describe this tree in human terms, you may use words like "heavyset" or "big boned". This tree is a very dense, upright, pyramidal conifer which can be a wonderful choice for use as a living Christmas tree. The Fat Albert is very slow growing, but it will become quite large over time at 30 feet tall by 25 feet wide.

This tree is best used as a yard tree or planted in a row and used as a privacy screen. Being a grafted (clone) tree it will show consistent shape and color when used in mass plantings. A great tree which does well in Colorado with very little maintenance. Plant in partial or full sun.

Maximum Elevation: 9,000 ft.
