Description

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 conifers – only growing 10 – 20 feet wide.  The 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 wind break 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 is fast for a conifer.  Birds, rabbits, and other small animals love the shelter it provides, but you don’t have to worry about them nibbling on the tree (or deer).  This tree also grows perfectly shaped pinecones.

Hardy to -40°F

Maximum Elevation: 9,000 Feet.
