Rich Blue Foliage on a Naturally Pyramidal Form

Create a stunning backdrop with the Fat Albert Colorado Blue Spruce. This evergreen conifer features rich blue needles and a naturally pyramidal form, making it a perfect pick for a living Christmas tree. In garden beds and landscapes, its bold blue color provides an excellent contrast for trees and bushes with greener foliage.

A variety of Colorado Blue Spruce, Fat Albert is a popular tree for colder regions, thriving in zones 2-8. It grows upright, with full branches radiating horizontally from the ground for a striking shape. Its branches feature dense needles in a rich silver-blue, making the tree stand out in your lawn or garden.

This Spruce is a slow grower, so you'll get bold landscape statement without an overwhelming size. The Fat Albert Colorado Spruce reaches 10-15 feet tall and wide within 10 years, and will eventually grow 40 feet tall and 20 feet wide. It's a great option for filling bare corners or adding height in a garden of low-growing plants or dwarf conifers.

The best part? This easy-growing Spruce couldn't be less work. It's extremely cold-hardy and tolerant of many soil conditions, as well as road salt and urban pollution.

This good-looking evergreen tree is a must-have in any garden. Get yours today!
