The Blue Wonder Dwarf Alberta Spruce is a perfect cone of rich blue-gray needles, forming a dense bush that will be 6 feet tall and just 2½ feet wide in ten years. It is beautiful as a specimen in a rock garden or bed, with other shrubs, or planted as part of a collection of dwarf evergreens. It is also beautiful in planter boxes framing a doorway, and it can be decorated to make a delightful miniature Christmas tree. It can be used in the foundation planting around your home, or out in the garden, and it even makes a wonderful bonsai. It needs absolutely no trimming to keep its exact conical shape.

  • Perfect tight conical form never needs trimming
  • Richly colored in sparking gray-blue
  • Excellent choice for containers framing an entrance
  • Extremely cold resistant to zone 2
  • Easy to grow in any well-drained soil

Grow the Blue Wonder Dwarf Alberta Spruce in full sun for best results, but it will tolerate a little shade too. It is incredibly cold-resistant, growing well even in zone 2, but just as well in zone 8. It only needs well-drained soil, of any type, including poorer rocky soils. It has no notable pests or diseases, and despite its remarkable appearance, this is a very easy plant to grow, and ideal for low-maintenance gardening across the country. In containers make sure you have drainage holes, and in zones 2 and 3 container-grown plants need to be planted in the garden for winter.
