Put This Christmas Tree On Your Wish List

You couldn’t ask Santa for a better evergreen. The Colorado Blue Spruce, Picea pungens 'Glauca', grows into the classic Christmas tree shape – no pruning required! They grow impressively tall (30 – 60 feet) but they have a small footprint, only growing 10 – 20 feet wide.

What really makes the Clorado Blue Spruce tree stand out of the crowd of other evergreens is the beautifully different color. It’s greenish. It’s blueish. It’s silvery. It shines next to dark greens and makes the autumn reds, yellows and oranges around it pop. It is just as striking in the winter as it is in the summer – maybe more so, since it sparkles covered in snow or next to brown, bare branches.

The Colorado Blue Spruce makes an excellent specimen tree, truly standing out in your landscape. It also makes a formidable privacy screen or wind break if several are planted in a row.

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. Birds and bunnies love the shelter it provides, but you don’t have to worry about them nibbling on it.

As an added benefit, this tree grows perfectly shaped pinecones that make great craft projects and are attractive to wildlife.

If you’d like an impressive evergreen tree with a vibrant color that requires little care, the Colorado Blue Spruce is the tree for you. Order yours early as these spectacular landscape trees are in high demand.
