Incredible Blue Evergreen Accent Tree

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 but they stay narrow, with a small footprint.

Outstanding Evergreen Color

What really makes the Colorado 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.

You can't help but notice Colorado Blue Spruce trees. They make an excellent accent tree, and an impressive privacy screen or wind break if several are planted in a row.

This cold hardy tree is 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.
