A Compact Spruce with Gorgeous Color

Most spruce trees tower over everything - but not the Baby Blue! This compact evergreen offers the same shape and vibrant color as the popular Colorado Blue Spruce - but it won’t grow taller than 25 feet. The Baby Blue Spruce is a semi-dwarf cultivar, perfect for people who love spruce trees but never thought they would have room for one!

Gardeners love the Baby Blue Spruce Tree because it fits so well into small spaces. Its limited height and width potential means that it can grow along borders and walkways. Try planting it alongside other Baby Blues to create a hedge - or as a standalone accent tree!

Baby Blue Spruces are so popular because their silvery-blue hue isn't easily found on other types of evergreens. At the same time, spruces grow in an attractive pyramidal shape that they maintain even without pruning. The density of the tree’s growth habit also gives it a sturdy fullness, unmatched by other evergreens.

Spruces are also incredibly practical. This hardy tree withstands whatever Mother Nature throws at it - extreme cold, high winds, snow, and salt. After it’s established, it’s even drought-tolerant. You don’t even have to worry about pests or deer nibbling on this one! This extremely adaptable, easy tree requires very little from you.

If you’ve been longing for a spruce in your yard but didn’t think you had the space, the Baby Blue Spruce is what you’ve been waiting for! Order yours now.

Planting & Care

Planting: Choose a spot that grows in full sun to partial shade. The tree thrives in any well-draining soil type. Ideally, you want to plant your Baby Blue Spruce in spring or fall.

Watering: After planting, water your tree a few times a week for the first two to three months. Though an established spruce is drought-tolerant, it is healthier and faster growing if you water it during dry periods of the year.

Fertilizing: You can add a slow-release fertilizer when planting and in the spring to ensure your tree is healthy. However, never use horticultural oil on your spruce.
