Picea pungens 'Glauca Globosa', commonly known as Colorado blue spruce 'Glauca Globosa', is a compact, slow-growing evergreen conifer that is highly valued for its unique blue-green foliage and attractive, rounded form. It is a cultivar of the Colorado blue spruce, which is native to the Rocky Mountains in western North America. This dwarf cultivar typically grows to a height of only 3-5 feet and a spread of 5-7 feet, making it an excellent choice for small gardens, rockeries, and containers. The needles are short, stiff, and sharply pointed, with a powdery blue-green color that intensifies in the winter. The cones are small and inconspicuous, and they do not typically appear until the tree is several years old. 'Glauca Globosa' prefers full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. It is hardy to USDA zones 2-7 and is highly tolerant of cold temperatures and harsh growing conditions. It requires little maintenance once established and is generally resistant to pests and diseases.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
