Big, bold and beautiful!
Colorado Spruce (Picea pungens) is meant for those gardeners who like to go big – really big. Estate-sized big.
This native American forest evergreen is meant for a big space. It will screen views for you…it eventually gets tall enough to screen the view from a second or third story window! It will be the massive windbreak that you want along the edge of your property. It will be the perfect town square living Christmas tree.
But don’t let that scare you off from using this strong beauty in your home landscape today.
Colorado Spruce are not fast growers, so you can enjoy it in your suburban lawn for a long, long time, too. It looks great next to your trees that change color and drop their leaves in autumn and it is Norman Rockwell picture perfect when it is covered in a blanket of snow. It is ready-made for Christmas lights.
This is one of the most popular conifers ever and is known for its perfect shape and rigid tiered branches. It will get 10’ – 12’ tall in 10 years and will eventually be 40’-60’ tall and 20’ wide as it ages.
There are no flowers to speak of, but who needs flowers with the great fresh tree scent you’ll get through your windows? People pay good money for candles that won’t ever smell as good as this tree.
