Put This Christmas Tree On Your Wish List
You couldn’t ask Santa for a better evergreen. The Colorado Blue Spruce, Picea pungens 'Glauca', grows into the classic Christmas tree shape – no pruning required! They grow impressively tall (30 – 60 feet) but they have a small footprint, only growing 10 – 20 feet wide.
What really makes the Clorado Blue Spruce tree stand out of the crowd of other evergreens is the beautifully different color. It’s greenish. It’s blueish. It’s silvery. It shines next to dark greens and makes the autumn reds, yellows and oranges around it pop. It is just as striking in the winter as it is in the summer – maybe more so, since it sparkles covered in snow or next to brown, bare branches.
The Colorado Blue Spruce makes an excellent specimen tree, truly standing out in your landscape. It also makes a formidable privacy screen or wind break if several are planted in a row.
Your Colorado Blue Spruce is an impressive tree. It is cold hardy and low maintenance, requiring little more than planting it and watching it grow. It is drought tolerant and unattractive to deer. Birds and bunnies love the shelter it provides, but you don’t have to worry about them nibbling on it.
As an added benefit, this tree grows perfectly shaped pinecones that make great craft projects and are attractive to wildlife.
If you’d like an impressive evergreen tree with a vibrant color that requires little care, the Colorado Blue Spruce is the tree for you. Order yours early as these spectacular landscape trees are in high demand.

Great Tree Review by Keith 10 years ago I planted 12 Colorado Blue Spruce trees as a property line divider line, and for the past 5 years they have been struggling to stay alive, from the bottom up. I live in the Hudson Valley, New York State Tree shape Review by Josy I like the way the Colorado Blue Spruce stays the same shape and form every year it grows. Dense tree Review by Don Our golf course has a mature row of blue spruce on an area behind a pond. They are out of bounds. They are beautiful all year and I get to see them up close more than I want to. very happy Review by Love it My colorado blue spruce arrived in great shaped. very happy. First buy from Nature Hills and will be a returning customer Review by bdavis113 I am working on building up a good wind break as we have a strong north wind where I live. I read about the different kinds of evergreens that might work, and decided on the Colorado Blue Spruce. I was curious how a live tree would be shipped. When I got the 2 trees I ordered, I was pleasantly surprised, they were alive and healthy looking little trees. I let them in their pots for a couple of days until I had enough time to go out and plant them. The tree were different sizes and look like they are a little differently shaped, so I am hoping that they will grow to the same shape. I planted the trees and put some mulch around them and made sure they were watered. They started taking off quickly. I put in some evergreen specific fertilization spikes to help make sure they get they nutrients they need to grow and be healthy. When I placed my order, the site gave me the shipping time on the order, however it did not say that it might not be shipped immediately. I waited the longest stated time for the trees to arrive, then emailed and asked what was going on. The answer surprised me, they said it would not ship until it was the planting season for the trees. An interesting idea to be sure and wasn't sure how happy I was with it, but with seeing how well the trees have done and survived and pretty harsh winter with a constant 3 ft of snow on the ground for months this year without a break, and without any covering on them, the tree look great and healthy. I would sincerely suggest buying from Nature Hills, specifically this tree as it is the only thing I have purchased so far. Thank you.
