Product Description

Baby Blue Eyes Spruce is a conical-shaped, fully branched selection of Colorado Spruce with a uniform growth habit and intense blue needles. On the average it will grow upward about 8 inches per year compared to some Colorado Spruce that can grow as much as 12 to 18 inches upward per year. Since it is a grafted plant , the growth rate can vary depending on the rootstock (understock) that it is grafted on to. It is most commonly grafted on to Picea abies (Norway Spruce) because of the vigorous root system that allows for better transplanting. Some trees that have been reported to be "dwarf" probably were grafted on to a less vigorous root system. All in all it is a very beautiful tree with a very appealing name that should be considered to be a semi-dwarf tree.
Hardy to -40°F
Maximum Elevation: 9,000 Feet
