Why plant Dwarf Globe Blue Spruce?
Fashions come and go, but this cool blue classic is always in style, looking sharp and polished—with little effort on your part! Globe Blue Spruce is a first-class evergreen accent plant for the more formal areas of your landscape, such as near your front door, walkway, or driveway, or in a courtyard or patio area behind your home. This easy-to-grow dwarf Blue Spruce naturally takes on a compact, rounded shape with no pruning. A matching pair of Globe Spruces is a fine way to call attention to an entrance door, path, or gate.
Blue Spruce, a Rocky Mountain native, is most often green in the wild and can develop into a 100-foot-plus tree. Luckily, homeowners looking to beautify their properties aren’t limited to planting these green giants, because keen plant-people are always looking out for great oddballs—mutants with extra-blue foliage, a dwarf habit, or a novel shape. Globe Blue Spruce was raised by a Dutch nurseryman named Kluys in the 1930s. After about 7 years, he knew he had something special, as the little “tree” was only 12 inches tall and wide!

How To Plant Dwarf Globe Blue Spruce
Globe Blue Spruce is a high-impact, low-maintenance plant. A tolerance for all-day sun, dry soil, and cold, snowy winters is built into its Rocky Mountain genes. Pests rarely bother it. The head will grow bigger and more impressive each year. Its steely blue needles look smashing in the company of other evergreens, like Norway Spruce and Emerald Arborvitae, and Japanese Maples in fall bring reds and oranges to the mix, making for a joyful but very classy picture.
How To Water
After receiving your Dwarf Globe Blue Spruce, you should be watering your plant regularly to help establish the roots. In dry periods, you should again be watering regularly to ensure your tree survivability.
How To Fertilize
You should be feeding your Dwarf Globe Blue Spruce in spring and summer. We recommend using our Elements Starter Plant Food in granular form.
How To Prune
Pruning is not really needed! If you want to prune for shape, then you can prune away any branches that are beyond the shrubs' natural shape.
How Does Shipping Work?
Size Small, Medium, and Large plants (our Treelings, Shrubs, Bushes, and Perennials) will be shipped directly to your home by a common carrier. Ships in a plant-safe designed box within 4-7 business days.
How Does Sizing Work?
The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)
Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.
All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
