One of the most popular evergreen trees. The foliage ranges from deep green to silver-blue. Colorado Spruce has a pyramidal shape that makes it an excellent landscape tree and Christmas tree. Plant in groups in larger landscapes or use as a windbreak to reduce winter winds. Prefers moist, well-drained soil, but is adaptable to most sites. Very hardy in hardiness zones 2 - 7. This container grown tree is a great miniature Christmas tree gift.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trees arrived very quickly and were in good condition. I ordered 20 Colorado Spruce Pine Trees to give as Christmas gifts. They arrived very quickly, with no broken branches, in moist soil and were all carefully wrapped in newspaper (a plastic bag was secured around each pot to hold the dirt in). The trees were very root-bound (probably intended for sale this past spring/summer/early fall). I loosened the roots before re-potting and all seem to be doing well (a month later). They were also bigger and had more branches than the online picture so they looked nice as gifts. They were of varying heights and shapes (within a couple of inches) - some had more branches, some had longer branches, some were slightly taller than the others, etc. The attached photo is of one of the trees I re-potted and added bows to for gifting. Overall I'm very pleased: the recipients liked them and I'm looking forward to putting the two I kept outside in the spring. December 30, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little trees I was very surprised with these spruce trees. They arrived quickly and in much better condition than I expected. Very healthy. We had to keep them indoors for quite awhile due to the unexpected cold spring temps, but since they've been in the ground they have been thriving nicely. The supplier wrapped, labeled, and shipped them better than I expected. May 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Looking Healthy I've purchased plants from Home Depot before and have had very good success with them - some of the bushes we got from Home Depot twenty years ago are still alive and growing (looking beautiful, too). So I felt confident that this little tree would be of the same quality, and so far so good. The tree, which is about 14" overall length, arrived with plenty of moist soil enveloping the root ball, and the branches, wrapped in brown paper, unfurled within 3 days of being transplanted. And now, after a couple more rainy days, the branches are 'reaching skyward' and the growth point at the tree's crown, is clearly visible. I'm very pleased with the progress the little tree has made so far, and I'm hopeful of having many more years of this tree becoming part of our Shade Forest. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly as described I purchased 3 different spruces at one time and all arrived in great, very healthy condition. I have been growing them indoors while waiting for freezing weather to give way to slightly warmer nights - maybe a bit overkill but better safe than sorry. All 3 trees have amazing abundant new growth. Overall, I am very pleased with my first experience with buying live plants on the Internet. February 17, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Healthy Plants My order arrived nicely packaged with good healthy plants. Negative, smaller than I thought based on description of plant. Value okay for what plant is. Plan on using containers for at least a year. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great quality plant arrived healthy and quickly roots looked fantastic January 27, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not really what I expected The trees were not what I expected. They were smaller and much more sparse than I would have wanted or expected. Hopefully as they grow they will certainly fill out to be a big and beautiful tree. December 10, 2012
