Paul’s Select Norway Spruce is a unique blue-needled form of Norway spruce. It is very winter-hardy to minus 40, and grows well in damper soil and climates than Colorado spruce does. It is tolerant of shade and stays dense right to the ground for many, many years. With its stunning blue needles, it makes a wonderful lawn specimen, an eye-catching background tree or a perfect wind-break to protect your garden from wind or tp screen ugly views. It grows rapidly to 15 or 20 feet tall, plenty tall enough for screening, but not too tall to overshadow the rest of your garden. It will grow steadily at close to 2 feet a year, so you will not be waiting long for that beautiful specimen or screen you dream off – and it will be a stunning blue one!

  • Hardy blue-needle evergreen to minus 40 degrees
  • Neat pyramidal compact form
  • Great choice in damper locations, but drought tolerant too
  • Perfect as a specimen or screening plant
  • Deer-resistant and free of pests

A sunny or partially-shade location is perfect for Paul’s Select Norway Spruce. It will even be content planted in full shade if it can reach up into the sun in a few years. Although it grows best in moist, rich soil, it will also grow well in almost any soil, including clay and compacted ground. It grows well in those damp parts of the garden, but once established it will tolerate normal drought well. Deer will normally leave it alone, and insects pests and diseases are also not problems. For a trouble-free, rapidly-growing plant of dynamic beauty, this is the choice you want to make.
