The Story

Blue Spruce is a native tree that you’re likely to see from the ski lift on a trip to the Rocky Mountains. Known popularly as “Colorado” Blue Spruce, it can also be found from the forests of Wyoming all the way down to the cooler regions of New Mexico. In the wild, it typically becomes a tall, narrow pyramid of prickly green needles, but this selection is a petite true-blue beauty.

How to Grow

Baby Blue Blue Spruce is easy to grow and care for in much of the U.S. (though it struggles in the hot, humid Deep South). Full sun is a prerequisite, and drainage must be excellent. Think of its cool, dry Rocky Mountain homeland. As you can imagine, heavy snows and frigid winter temperatures are no problem for this super-hardy tree, and it has no serious pest or disease issues, either.
