The Ruby Teardrops Colorado Spruce is a remarkable and unique dwarf evergreen, that grows into a beautiful mounded plant up to 5 feet tall, covered in spring with dramatic deep-red young cones. These ‘teardrops’ create a spectacular effect that rivals any flowering shrub for beauty and interest. This plant is as tough as its parent, thriving in the coldest areas and growing easily in any well-drained soil. Plant it among other dwarf evergreens or use it as a specimen on a small lawn. Group it with other shrubs, or as an accent in a flower bed. Each spring, when ruby tears come again, you will love having such a unique plant in your garden.

  • Unique dwarf evergreen for any garden
  • Striking rich red ‘flowers’ in spring
  • Mound of silver-blue branches to 5 feet tall
  • Top-rate collector’s plant, but easy to grow
  • Hardy to minus 50

The Ruby Teardrops Colorado Blue Spruce will grow in all soils, from sand to clay, as long as they are well-drained. If you have poor drainage, plant on a low raised mound. This tree is hardy to zone 2, with temperatures of minus 50 degrees, so it will survive anywhere. Once established it is drought-resistant, although young plants should be watered regularly. It is normally not affected by pests or diseases, and it will usually not be eaten by deer at all.
