Baker’s Blue Colorado Spruce is the perfect small version of the extremely popular Blue Spruce. Instead of becoming a large tree, it stays compact, reach no more than 10 feet tall in 10 years, and staying about 4 feet wide at the base. It has longer needles, and a super-intense dark blue color, exactly what is needed for maximum impact. Grow it as a specimen tree on the lawn in a smaller garden, or in a group on a larger lawn. Plant it among shrubs for accent and year-round color, or as a lower screen. It also looks great in planter boxes and large containers, on the driveway or terrace.

  • Scaled-down version of the popular Blue Spruce
  • Perfect choice for smaller gardens
  • Longer, more intensely-blue needles
  • Beautiful upright pyramidal form
  • Hardy to minus 50 and very tough

Baker’s Blue Colorado Spruce is very cold hardy, right into zone 3, and it thrives in all the cooler parts of the country. Grow it in full sun for the best color, although it will tolerate a little light shade too. It grows easily in almost any soil, from sand to clay, and including alkaline soils, just so long as they are well-drained, without standing water. It rarely suffers from any pests or diseases, and it needs no trimming to keep its great shape, although it can also be trimmed into a perfect geometrical cone, if required.
