Spectacular Gray-Blue Foliage
Blue Wonder Spruce (Picea glauca 'Blue Wonder') doesn't get lost in a sea of green landscape plants. Its stunning gray-blue foliage offers a shimmery contrast to monotone landscape palettes. Extremely cold-tolerant, Blue Wonder Spruce is also a dwarf evergreen that grows to only 6 feet tall. It delightfully graces small yards by bringing large-scale beauty to small-scale landscapes!
Its outstanding foliage color is easily Blue Wonder Spruce's biggest appeal. But this tree's merits don't stop there. Adding to its value are more benefits, such as:
• Color retention. There are other dwarf spruce trees, which are bred to have foliage colors other than green. Over time, however, most of these cultivars revert to a green color. Blue Wonder Spruce does not have a tendency to revert to green foliage like these other cultivars. It has superior color retention over time.
• No pruning needed. It grows naturally into a dense, conical shape so you won't have to prune it to keep it looking shapely!
• Deer resistance. For all its visual appeal, Blue Wonder Spruce is not a favorite of deer, which helps it maintain a beautiful appearance.
Blue Wonder Spruce is truly a landscape designer's dream because of its versatility! It lends an elegant touch to a formal garden, paired with statuary or as a standalone focal point. Welcoming guests to your home, it contrasts beautifully with other plants as an off-center specimen and it gives a symmetrical look when planted on both sides of an entryway. It is also a striking container plant, whether you use it individually or in a mixed grouping. And since evergreen trees are associated with winter holiday celebrations, plant a Blue Wonder Spruce in your front yard, string lights in its boughs, and decorate it as a living Christmas tree!
So Simple to Grow
Just a few simple care tips will keep your Blue Wonder Spruce in tip-top shape year-round:
• Sun. Plant Blue Wonder Spruce on a site that receives full to partial sun but not heavy shade.
• Soil. The roots don't like soggy soil, so make sure the soil on its planting site drains freely.
• Water. Keep your tree well-watered during the first year after you plant it, which will encourage a strong, healthy root system. In subsequent years, you'll only have to water it if natural rainfall doesn't equal 1 inch per week.
• Fertilizer. When you see new growth in springtime, apply a general-purpose fertilizer and follow label directions.
• Pruning. You'll only have to trim dead or broken branches to keep Blue Wonder Spruce looking its best. A few snips here and there around the holidays yield lovely cuttings to tuck into festive arrangements for decorating your home!
