This classic ornamental evergreen tree will light up your property with rich silvery blue color! 

You'll admire this popular tree's beauty, and appreciate how easy it is to care for. These evergreens make excellent landscape specimens... or plant them in a row as a privacy screen or windbreak. 

Blue Spruces are admired for their symmetrical, yet narrow growth habit. They will grow to about 30 to 50 feet high but only 10 to 20 feet wide. 

These evergreen trees are extremely hardy and adaptable to a variety of conditions. They are drought-tolerant once established, and will thrive in partial to full sun. With their dense branches and pyramidal shape, they are rugged enough to use as a windbreak. 

Blue spruces are even grown as Christmas trees! Their beauty even shines under snowfall. 

Landscape professionals love to use these trees for their dramatic foliage color. The bright blue new growth changes to silvery blue as the trees get older. 

The trees are often used as a blue backdrop for shrubs that turn shades of reds, golds, and purples in the fall. 

Flowering trees also compliment the blue spruce. Their attractive flowers in the spring contrast well with the blue color. 

And don't forget the birds! These feathered creatures love the thick needles and dense branches of the blue spruce. On the other hand, deer are not partial to this tree.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.

Tree to Door

Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area.  Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free.  Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.

Yes... Your Colorado Blue Spruce can be planted any time of year... even Winter. Roots will continue to grow on warm days, giving your tree a head-start for Spring.

It's Easy to Plant your Colorado Blue Spruce


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Colorado Blue Spruce.

If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Colorado Blue Spruce gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Colorado Blue Spruce again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.
