Colorado Blue Spruce

Picea pungens var. glauca 30-60'

Very popular specimen tree with truer blue foliage than other varieties. Can be used as a screen, as it is fast growing after 3'.

There’s a beautiful specimen on a lawn facing the Kennebec River near the Hinckley Bridge that owners have dubbed “Bruce the Spruce.” So lovely you might want to name yours.

Does not like wet soil. Extra spring nitrogen will improve blue color, which doesn’t appear for first few years. Native to western U.S. Z2. (9-18" bare-root transplants)

Additional Information


Evergreens tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer a pH between 5.5–6.5.
Young conifers need ¾–1" of rain per week. Periodic deep waterings are far more beneficial than frequent sprinklings. No fertilization is necessary in the first year.
