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.
