Blue Spruce Appeal with Built-In Disease Resistance

Considered an exotic evergreen in the United States, the Meyer Spruce is catching on as a favored alternative to the Blue Spruce. A native of China and Russia, it’s virtually identical to its American counterpart in shape, color and texture.

Like the Blue Spruce, it’s most notable for its distinct, blue-green color and tapered, conical shape. But what sets it apart is its disease resistance. This Chinese variety is tolerant of common pests that can wreak havoc on our native species. In fact, if you’ve attempted to grow the Blue Spruce with little success, you’ll find this conifer easily fills its “landscape shoes.”

Classic Christmas Tree Flair

The Meyer Spruce is a welcome addition of warmth and good cheer when most of your surroundings are taking a long winter’s nap. It has a classic Christmas tree shape – wider branches at the base, tapering to a single upright “star topper” at its peak. Tipped in silvery-blue, boughs are upright and dense with foliage. Soft, needle-like leaves are half-inch to an inch long and cover the branch in a uniform, spiral fashion.

Adapts to Most Any Setting

Picture a spruce tree, and the scene usually includes a snow-covered setting. But the truth is the Chinese “Blue Spruce” thrives in a wide range of climates that extend well into the southern most regions of the country. Recommended for USDA Zones 2-8, it weathers fluctuating conditions from hot and cold to dry and rainy with persistent vigor.

No need to concern yourself with soil type, consistency, even pH when selecting a location for the Meyer Spruce. As long as there’s good drainage and 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight each day, this tree will flourish to 40 feet or taller!

Due to its hardy nature, the Meyer Spruce is the preferred “blue spruce” for those living in humid climates where disease is more likely to spread. And given its adaptability, it’s a fine choice for moisture-conserving landscapes and low air-quality urban environments.

Fulfills a Variety of Landscape Needs

Although it makes a stunning single specimen ornamental, it can also address a variety of functional needs. Its dense habitat works wonders as a shelterbelt or break from cold winds and blowing snow. Stagger trees along a busy street, and you have a living privacy fence and sound barrier.

Its protective branches draw in neighborhood animals, serving as comfortable shelter and plush nesting sites. Lodging aside, deer find this evergreen unpalatable, preferring more tender options as dining fare.

The Meyer Spruce makes a bold statement with its crisp, architectural frame and cool-blue personality. Low maintenance and versatile, it’s sure to fulfill its year-round duties with ease. Already have a location in mind? Give us a call. Healthy, established trees are ready to ship!

We love the trees. They arrived in great condition and continue to do well even though we are in the middle of a dry spell. Only down side is we just didn't realize how slow growing they are. Read descriptions carefully.

Difficult growing should have waited til fall.
Trees arrived in excellent condition. I followed the planting
instructions, however, the weather is soo hot trees are dry
even with constant watering. I should have waited until fall and cooler weather to plant. Probably will loose all five trees.

Great service, unfortunately tree did not survive
service and communications are great! unfortunately the tree died after 2 weeks. most likely due to the climate here. very warm upper 90's lots of sun and very dry. I Did water it every day.
Still noting like rain water to keep things growing. Very good company to buy from. Just can't control mother nature.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Meyer Spruce

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Meyer 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 Meyer 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 Meyer Spruce again after the transplant is complete.
