The Blue Teardrop Spruce is a small conifer growing to about 4 feet tall and 2 feet wide within 10 years, and taller with time. its stiff, upright branches make a dense cone with rounded sides, shaped like a teardrop. The branches are tightly covered in short needles, which are powdery blue in spring, and mature to a rich silver-blue, which holds its color well, without greening. This great little plant is perfect as a specimen in a bed with other shrubs, or as part of a display-bed of dwarf conifers of different kinds. Invaluable in colder regions, it can also be grown in pots and planters.

  • Perfect small conical evergreen
  • Rich powder-blue to silver-blue needles
  • Very cold resistant and reliable in cold zones
  • Ideal as a small specimen tree
  • Excellent in planters and pots

Full sun is best for the Blue Teardrop Spruce, which thrives in any well-drained soil. It is completely hardy in zone 3, and it grows as far south as zone 6, and in warmer zones in the north-west. It has no significant pests or diseases, deer leave it alone, and it needs no special care. It does not need trimming to maintain its neat, small form, and once established it is relatively drought resistant too.
