It produces 99% blue color trees, making for a striking addition to any landscape. Native to western North America, Majestic prefers cold, dry, high mountain sites but can also thrive in wet, cold, and shallow soils. Its deeply penetrating root system makes it wind-firm in a variety of soil types. It's a long-lived but slow-growing tree, with specimens up to 800 years old recorded in the wild. Routine availability and adaptability to a range of soil types make it an excellent choice for any landscaping project.
