Picea pungens Glauca: Bareroot Sapling Blue Spruce Trees

Blue Spruce is a natural variant of the Colorado spruce, being a medium-sized tree with blue tinted, grey-green needles. Especially beautiful by water, it also makes a good no drop Christmas tree. To 15m

See our other evergreens, our range of sapling trees and hedging, or our range of trees.

Delivery season: Spruces are delivered bareroot during late autumn and winter, approximately November-March inclusive.
Choosing a size: Small plants are cheaper and more forgiving of less than ideal aftercare, so they are best for a big planting project. If instant impact is your priority, or if you are only buying a few plants for ornamental use in a place where it is convenient to water them well in their first year, then you may as well use bigger ones. All our sapling trees are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).


  • Height: To 15m
  • Soil: Moist, slightly acidic
  • Silvery-grey foliage
  • Looks good beside water
  • Bareroot delivery only: November-March

Growing Blue Spruce

It is not fussy about soil, but will be most vigorous on rich, moist, slightly acidic sites. Good drought tolerance when established. Suitable for exposed, windy sites.

Did You Know?

It was first propagated in the UK from cuttings in 1877 by Anthony Waterer at Knap Hill nursery in Surrey.

Picea means spruce, pungens means sharp pointed, referring to the needles, and glauca is glaucous, referring to the waxy coating on the needles that gives them their distinctive colour.
