The Blue Diamond Spruce is a special dwarf selection of the blue spruce, with outstanding silver-blue foliage. Its dramatic coloring really stands out in any landscape, yet this sturdy plant thrives in poor conditions and very cold, windy locations. It is a top-pick for beauty in tough places and it looks perfect all year round. Reaching just 4 feet tall in 10 years, its neat pyramidal structure needs no trimming to always look perfect. In time it may reach about 12 feet tall. Grow it on a small lawn, among rocks and gravel with other evergreens, around your home, or even in a planter. This wonderful tree is among the brightest and most colorful of all the forms of blue spruce that are available.

  • Brilliant silver-blue foliage all year round
  • Neat pyramidal form needs no trimming to look perfect
  • Dwarf selection for smaller gardens and locations
  • Very cold resistant, and thrives in hot zones as well
  • Grows well even in poor soil

Plant the Blue Diamond Spruce in full sun for the best color and dense structure. It will grow well in any well-drained soil, including heavy soils, rocky soils, and sand. It grows almost anywhere, from zone 3 to zone 8, and resists cold and strong winds. Once established it is drought resistant, and almost never bothered by insects or diseases. Deer normally leave it alone. No trimming is required, but if you wish it can be trimmed for even greater neatness.
