The blue spruce is the essential specimen tree in every cooler part of the country, and the best specimens are compact, dense, and with fabulous sky-blue silvery needles. The Baby Blue Eyes Spruce fits that perfectly, and it doesn’t become a giant tree. Instead it stays compact and full, with branches right to the ground. Just 6 feet tall after 10 years, it is perfect for a smaller garden, or for foundation planting around your house. Grow it with other conifers of different types in a bed, decorated with gravel mulch and boulders – nothing could be simpler or more effective. Plant it in a large planter box – perhaps a pair outside your door. It looks perfectly symmetrical and neat without any trimming and its color is simply spectacular.

  • Superb sky-blue silver foliage – the best
  • Compact and dense form for smaller spaces
  • Hardy and very easy to grow successfully
  • Grows in any well-drained soil
  • Tough and reliable for urban planting

Plant the Baby Blue Eyes Spruce in full sun, or a lightly-shaded spot. It will grow in almost any soil, even poor ones, just as long as it is well-drained. Plant on a low mound in areas with poor drainage. It is hardy from zone 3 to zone 8, and it rarely suffers from any pests or diseases. It is also resistant to salt-spray, and this is truly one of the very best color forms available. Its superb sky-blue needles will glow and sparkle in your garden all year round.
