Colorado Green Spruce

Picea pungens

$35.00$289.00 + GST

A very popular, extremely hardy evergreen with large, dense branching, and a strong central leader. Makes an excellent windbreak. Covered with long green, pointy needles. A tree of great beauty. New growth emerges a brighter blue/green colour than existing needles. Rough gray bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape. Deer do not particularly care for this plant and will leave it alone in favor of other tasty treats. Aggressive root structure which will pull any available water and nutrients from surrounding soils.
