Colorado Blue Spruce
Evergreen Tree with Outstanding Foliage Color
The Colorado Blue Spruce is a large evergreen tree with outstanding color. Plant one as a specimen tree or several as an effective windbreak and privacy screen.
The outstanding features of your Colorado Blue Spruce are its shape and color. This pyramidal conifer has tiered, horizontal branches that fill out all the way down to the ground. It maintains a pleasing shape without special care.
The color of the needles are a lovely blue-green with an enchanting silver hue that stands out year round, but will be especially resplendent amid the browns and grays of your winter landscape.
Your Colorado Blue Spruce is an impressive tree. It is cold hardy and low maintenance, requiring little more than planting it and watching it grow. It is drought tolerant and unattractive to deer. Your yard’s birds and bunnies will love the shelter it provides, but you don’t have to worry about them nibbling on it.
As an added benefit, pinecones will form on your Colorado Blue Spruce, presenting a pleasing light green shade at first and transitioning to brown when mature. The cones are a nice choice for many craft projects and attractive to wildlife.
If you’d like an impressive evergreen tree with vibrant color and requiring little care, the Colorado Blue Spruce is the tree for you.
