Unique Blue-Grey Foliage on a Space Saving Evergreen

The Blue Wonder Spruce is changing the evergreen game by having eye-catching bluish grey foliage all year. Its unique hue stands out in the landscape and compliments other plants.  

 By only growing to about 6 feet tall and 2-3 feet wide, this spruce can fit anywhere. It can be used as hedgerows or privacy screens in areas with limited space without impeding into the neighbor’s yard. They also look great as stand alone trees and accent pieces. 

The creative possibilities are endless for the Blue Wonder Spruce, because it even thrives in containers. Use them to frame entryways or to add bursts of color to your deck or patio.

This spruce variety is low maintenance and rarely requires pruning because it has a natural cone, or ‘Christmas tree’, shape, for this reason many people wrap strings of light around their Blue Wonder Spruces every holiday season. 

Blue Wonder Spruces are the worry free evergreens because of their tough and resilient nature. They are cold hardy to growing zone 3 so they will tolerate the harsh winters and subzero temperatures in the coldest areas of the nation. By being salt tolerant, they even thrive in Northern areas where salt sprays are commonly used. 

Nothing stops the Blue Wonder Spruce! They will thrive in a variety of poor soils even if they’re rocky and sandy and have a high level of drought tolerance. Plus these spruces are deer resistant and will flourish in areas with a high deer population.

Beware of Bare-Root... It may be tempting to purchase a bare-root tree or shrub because it is less expensive than one with a full root system intact. The price is lower on bare-roots because they're cheaper to ship. You're very likely to receive a plant that is damaged because the delicate root system was exposed and the plant is starved of vital nutrients needed to survive. This will cause slower growth for your tree and will be more susceptible to disease.

Wonderful Spruce.

Full and Healthy
Got our Blue Wonder Spruce in the mail today here in SC. It was well packaged in durable cardboard and the soil in the pot was moist with plastic wrapped around it. The size of it was impressive for a seedling and I was pleasantly surprised with the fullness of it.

But I was not sure why the Blue Wonder spruce was green. So I called Clemson to talk with their plant department and ask why since I couldn't find much information online. They said if the plant was labeled properly, it could be that the tree is still too young to see the blue color develop and it also has to get acclimated with its new surroundings and permanent home in the ground before it becomes blue.

Here's hoping it turns blue. But I am happy to find a tree that will only grow to 6 feet high near the house. It will feel like Christmas year round. :)

Nice trees
I purchased two and they arrived within days and in great condition. I let them acclimate for a few days, then planted them. They seem to be doing well. I’m very pleased with my overall experience and will buy more in the future. I bought a Hinoki a couple of years ago and it has grown noticeably.

Great looking
Got 2 two of them. Arrived in two days to Massachusetts. Very happy with the way the look. They were in great shape and planted them right away. If there is one thing to complain would be just the color. They are not as blue as i expected, there is more green to them. I will submit photos. Will see how they do till next year.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Blue Wonder Spruce

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

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.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Blue Wonder 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 Blue Wonder Spruce again after the transplant is complete.

Margarette B on Jan 14, 2019
I love blue spruce trees. I have a Great Grandson due in Jan. 2019 and I want it to be planted at his home so he will have something from me long after I am gone. I want him to think of me each time he looks at it. I am hoping I will receive it by the 23rd of Nov. 2018
As this is a gift for the baby shower

Love blue spruce and since this is small, wanted to add to my landscape.
Shelia S on Sep 17, 2018
I have never seen this type of Blue Spruce style tree before. I love that it only reaches height of 6'. The pictures on the website were very vivid and the background information on the tree helped me to determine if I could grow it my zone. I cannot wait to receive it. If it looks as good as the pictures I will probably be purchasing more!
Cheryl P on Sep 9, 2018
Small blue spruce tree, no maintenance for a small border area. I only wish I could have ordered a larger size tree instead of this smaller size.

I choose The Blue Wonder Spruce because of the color, they are evergreen, and do not get too big. I am hoping that they are easy to care for. Will hold final judgement until I see the trees. Thank you.

What is the root system like? Does it grown deep and/or wide?
Jean R on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They have shallow/surface roots.
how fast do these trees grow?
Kay M on Sep 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They are slow growers of 6-8" per year.
Do you have option to purchase larger wonder blue spruce?
Shawn M on Mar 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The only size we have available in the Blue Wonder Spruce is the 1 to 2 foot size.
Will this tree grow in less than 3 hrs. Morning sun?
Jan J on Jun 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I actually moved mine as it was in a similar location and was just static and not growing. I only moved it a couple of yards, just enough to get out of the shadows and it thrived. It gets morning and evening sun, and now in June its getting around 8 hours direct sun a day. Its also by a sprinkler, getting watered twice a day.
We live in growing zone 7 when would be the best time of year to plant the blue wonder spruce?
Lindsay A on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hello! I recommend early fall. This will give enough time for the tree to develop roots and not stress from summer heat. Keep grass away from the base of the tree.
Can this tree make it in a woodland garden?
Jan J on Jun 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We live in the Pacific Northwest of Washington State, and our little Blue Winder Spruce is growing Great! We had a very cold and snowy winter, wet spring and we are very happy with how much it has grown this last year. The first year we saw very little growth and we were not sure if it would make it but this year it really took off. We live in the foot lands of the Mountains next to the National Forest Lands.
In Zone 7, can this be planted in early spring?
Janice A on Mar 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes. As with any planting, keep watered first few weeks so roots can get established.
Will is thrive in zone 9? We get hot summers here
joe e on Nov 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Joe: I do no know. I suggest you ask Fast Growing Trees. They are very helpful. Bob
How far from the foundation should it be planted to avoid damage?
Amanda S on Mar 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They do not have an invasive root system that will harm any foundation. They will get 2-3ft wid. I would space them about 1-2ft from a structure.
Would it be ok to order in January in zone 7 and plant it in a container?
Julia E on Dec 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can order and we do ship to Zone 7 in January. It would do much better in the ground but you can keep it in a container for a bit.
Are the estimated width measures correct? Description says height 6 ft and width 2.5 to 3 ft wide. Therefore it would not be conical but more like a column. I would think if conical then it would get to be 5 to 6 ft wide. This would make more sense of the spacing requirement as well. Can someone please verify?
John B on Sep 6, 2018
My tiny blue Wonder Spruce just arrived but the color looks green. Is this normal when the tree is young? It is only about a foot high.
Virginia Oma on Jul 30, 2018
