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 2 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.

I love my two trees. They work perfectly in my front yard. The packaging was good and it was easy handling the trees. I only wish they were a little larger.

"Wonder" Ful Tree!
Really pleased with my Wonder Blue Spruce tree which I planted a month ago in a sunny garden bed to the right of my front door entryway. The tree arrived well packaged and in excellent shape, about 18" talk in a 5-6 inch planter pot. I planted it in early April within 5 days of receiving it, while temps were still cool but above freezing at night. It transplanted well and is beginning to put out new budding growth. As it's a dwarf tree, not reaching more than 6' tall, would anticipate it may grow ~ 4 inches over the rest of the year. Would definitely recommend this lovely tree for a smaller garden or landscaped area.

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.

I live in New England if I purchase now can it be planted in October and live through the winter or is it best to plant in the spring?
Joy P on Sep 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I live in northern West Virginia and planted my blue spruce in November. That was a year ago, and it is doing great. I was told that as long as it grow roots before the ground freezes, it'll be Fine. I think you'll be fine planting in October
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.
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.
