Colorado Blue Spruce

One of the advantages of the Colorado Blue Spruce is its large hardiness area. This coniferous tree, which is characterized by its gray-blue needle-like leaves, will thrive in every part of the contiguous United States. And it makes an excellent landscape accent, as it is a very full tree and can block unpleasant sights like road traffic.

The Colorado Blue Spruce can vary in color, from dark green to all shades of blue-green to powder-white blue. Tree shown in picture is 15 to 25 years old.
