Hoop’s Blue Spruce is the ‘crème de la crème’ of blue-needled trees. If you want the best blue spruce to grace your lawn or garden, every expert agrees this is the one you want. It has a dense, upright profile, a little narrower than other blue spruce trees, and the vibrant blue-green color of the needles is remarkable for its intensity and richness. Use this beautiful tree as a specimen in a lawn. Plant it to finish the corners of your garden. Grow a row as a dramatic screen and wind-break, protecting your garden from the coldest winter winds. This tree will grow at a steady pace to 30 feet tall, and eventually may reach 50 feet. It will be 12 to 20 feet wide, so allow enough room for it to develop properly when planting. It is also one of the hardiest trees, growing even in zone 2, so there is hardly a place it will not grow.

  • The most spectacular silver-blue evergreen tree
  • Narrow upright habit
  • Hardy to minus 50
  • Thrives in difficult, exposed areas
  • Ideal for specimens, screens or hedges

Plant your Hoop’s Blue Spruce in any well-drained soil, from sand to clay. In wet areas, plant it on a mound of soil 6 to 12 inches high. Do not plant deeper than the tree was in the container. Watered regularly during the first one or two years, but after that it only needs attention during extended periods of drought. This tree rarely suffers from any pests or diseases, and even deer leave it alone. It should be planted in a sunny location, or in partial shade if it will reach the sunlight as it grows.
