Baby Blues are an excellent strain of Colorado Blue Spruce.
They are comparable to the best clones of that species.
Every tree is very blue with needles arranged in a full round pattern.
They are typically strong, symmetrical growers. Like all Colorado Spruce,
Baby Blues do best in full sun, on well drained soil with good air flow around them.
Avoid planting in the shade or in wet spots.
If planting in heavy soil, they will benefit if the ground is mounded or bermed to give them more drainage.
The heavier, wetter the ground, the more essential it is to mound them.
Baby Blues make excellent specimen trees. They are stately and look best as individuals or with other Baby Blues, rather than used as a mixture with other evergreens, even other Colorado Spruce. They grow in hardiness zones 2-8, are long lived, and typically grow 10" to 15"+ per year. Baby Blue Colorado Spruce are available as potted trees, balled and burlap, and live chrismas trees.
