One of the most popular ornamental conifers, the Colorado blue spruce (or simply, blue spruce) is a truly magnificent sight. Perhaps Donald Culrose Peattie described it best in A Natural History of Western Trees. "This insistently pretty tree displays its charms of tier on tier of branches graduated in perfect symmetry from the longest boughs that sweep the ground to the slender but strong top."
Its silvery blue-green coloring and perfect Christmas tree shape make this tree a great landscaping focal point on commercial and residential properties. It is also widely used for privacy or a windbreak and prefers moist loam or clay soils. Somewhat slow growing, drought tolerant and unattractive to deer. They grow impressively tall (30'-60') and only 10'-20' wide. It is cold, hardy and low maintenance. Recommended for zones 2-7.
