Blue spruces, also known as Colorado Blue Spruces, are coated with silver-blue needles. Their silvery-blue needles are prickly to the touch and have a strong, fresh, piney smell. Its pyramidal shape, foliage color, and wonderful smell make this tree a classic choice for a Christmas tree. Not only are these spruces the most widely planted landscape trees, they are the ideal tree for your shelterbelt, privacy screen, or accent tree project.
Colorado Blue Spruce is invaluable in deer country, as their prickly texture and strong smell render them deer-resistant. In the wintry North, where landscapes can look barren in winter, these evergreens provide much-needed winter interest.
