Baby Blue Spruce - Picea pungens 'Baby Blue'
A very intense blue coloured pyramidal shaped Spruce that has similar growth habit to regular Colorado's except fuller in branching and needle thickness. Requires no extra shearing to improve fullness. Drought tolerant and is very cold hardy. Seed grown.
Prefers slightly acidic soil. If alkaline soil, top dress soil with aluminum sulfate to acidify soil and intensify the blue colour. Water regularly as needed. Feed in spring with an all purpose fertilizer. Little pruning is necessary. Prune broken or damaged limbs.
