Picea pungens ‘Glauca Slenderina Pendula’

 

Imagine the color and foliage of a Colorado Blue Spruce combined with the form of a weeping Norway spruce and you have the Weeping Colorado Blue Spruce. Another mythical-looking Seuss-like tree to add whimsy and striking form to a garden bed. For best form, plant in full sun in well-drained soil. Grows 12 feet high in 20 years.

Joseph's Take

Weeping Blue Spruce is another cold weather lovin speciman. In order to maintain its famous blue color it will need as much sun as possible, in shade it will grow less and try to turn green. I like to pair my Weeping Blue Spruce with colorful grown cover like Drift Roses, some great companions are below.
