Byland's Blue is a dwarf, very compact blue Colorado blue spruce that retains its globe-shape because of its multiple growing points resulting in a symmetrical form.  It has short, medium blue coloured needles and requires no pruning since it does not bolt into a single leader. The growth rate is slow (30% less than P. pungens ‘Globosa’) and consistent. Excellent accent evergreen for small spaces. Mature size is 1 x 1 metres. Zone 2.
