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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
Can this tree be planted in October in zone 7 or should I wait until spring? Or can these be planted in a pot and then transferred to the ground after winter?
Jean R on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I was told that it could be planted in October in ground, as this helps to establish rooting for spring. I have planted mine and we shall see. I was told that because it is hardy it will withstand the cold. Now I just planted it in first week of October however can not tell much as not long it has passed since I planted.
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.
Am trying to visualize this 1 to 2 ft spruce. Does it arrive as a single stem or is branching out and appears as a miniature tee?
