Spruce 'Blue Globe'
Latin Name: Picea pungens 'Globosa'
A small, dense globe-shaped shrub, very unlike the species, as a mounded form that eventually becomes a compact and dense Christmas tree-like shape, adaptable and hardy; intensely blue needles, an excellent choice for form and color in the garden.
Globe Blue Spruce has attractive blue foliage which emerges silvery blue in spring. The needles are highly ornamental and remain blue throughout the winter.
This is a relatively low maintenance shrub. When pruning is necessary, it is recommended to only trim back the new growth of the current season, other than to remove any dieback.
