Picea pungens ‘Iseli Fastigiate’
The Iseli Fastigate is a narrow, vertical form of the Colorado Blue Spruce. It is the perfect choice of evergreens for narrow spaces or used as privacy screens without sacrificing ground space. This tree is a strong growing and adaptable tree which works great as a landscape tree for vertical accent, or where space is a consideration. This tree is also widely used as a wind screen and as a natural privacy screen. It does great in the winter and adds nice accent to any landscape. This tree typically grows to a width of 6-9 feet and height of roughly 25 feet. This tree has a beautiful blue color which persists all year long and adds great contrast to any landscape. This tree is cold hearty and more drought tolerant than other spruce varieties and prefers rich soil but will generally do fine anywhere around Colorado’s front range in well draining full sun areas. This tree should be watered occasionally for the first 2-3 years especially during the hot summer months.
This tree requires very little maintenance and no pruning – just plant it in a well draining area with full sun. Recommended to water occasionally during Colorado’s hot summer months, especially in the first couple years after planting.
