This tree is best known as the Blue Spruce. It can tolerate soil and drought conditions better that many other spruce species. The tree develops a formal, conical shape with very stiff braches and needles. Growth is slow, but it gradually forms a 40 to 50 foot tree averaging only about one foot of growth per year. Deep soils with good drainage provide the best growth. It needs full sun and a location with good air circulation.
