Picea pungens var. glauca30-60' Very popular specimen tree with frosty blue needles. Excellent for privacy screens, as it is fast growing after 3'. A beautiful stand of blue spruce is on Rt. 139 in Benton, just before you cross the Sebasticook River. Plant in full sun to part shade. Does not like wet soil. Extra spring nitrogen will improve blue color, which doesn’t appear for the first few years. Native to western U.S. Z2. (18-30" bare-root transplants)

Evergreens tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer a pH between 5.5–6.5. Young conifers need ¾–1" of rain per week. Periodic deep waterings are far more beneficial than frequent sprinklings. No fertilization is necessary in the first year.
