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 as if it were a human, 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.  This tree is a very slow grower but this tree 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.

Hardy to -40°F
Maximum Elevation: 9,000 ft.
