Discover the captivating beauty of Picea pungens var. glauca - Blue Spruce. With its intense blue color, this popular ornamental tree will add a touch of elegance to any landscape. The Kaibab source, known for its stunning blue color, ensures that a high percentage of seedlings will display the striking blue needles.
Blue Spruce, also known as Colorado Blue Spruce, is native to western North America and can be found in regions such as Utah, Wyoming, and Arizona. Unlike other spruce species in the area, it grows at high altitudes and is commonly found along streamsides in mountain valleys.
This medium-sized evergreen tree can reach heights of 90 ft and has a conical crown. Its needle-like leaves are rhombic in shape and vary from dull gray-green to bright glaucous blue. The tip of the leaves is sharply pointed, giving the tree its specific epithet pungens.
The Blue Spruce has pendulous seed cones that open to reveal their thin, flexible scales. The cones mature to a pale brown color and contain black seeds with a pale brown wing. These trees have a deeply penetrating root system, which helps anchor them against strong winds.
Suitable for a range of soil types, Blue Spruce thrives in moist soils but can tolerate drier conditions if provided with deep, moist soil. It prefers a cold and dry high mountain site and can withstand exposure to some degree. This long-lived tree is slow-growing in the wild, with some specimens recorded to be as old as 800 years.
The Blue Spruce is a versatile tree that can be used as a Christmas tree, ornamental tree, and even for lumber. Its stunning blue color and impressive size make it a standout feature in any garden or landscape. Whether you're looking to enhance your outdoor space or add a touch of holiday cheer, the Picea pungens var. glauca Blue Spruce is the perfect choice.

The Pagosa origin is a very good substitute for the Sante Fe one, literally only about 100 miles apart and they have identical characteristics.
