Why plant The Blues Weeping Blue Spruce?
One of these things is not like the other! The Blues Weeping Blue Spruce is a unique specimen tree covered in dazzling, steely blue needles that weep down toward the ground. However, if symmetry is your 'thing', you may want to pass, as The Blues is known for being one kind! The Blues Weeping Blue Spruce, maintaining its status in the Pine family, produces light brown cones when maturity is met. With its slow growth rate and very manageable lifestyle, this Spruce is a perfect fit in any home landscape.
The Blues Weeping Blue Spruce was found by Larry Stanley of Stanley & Sons Nursery in Boring Oregon around 1982 as a side sport on "Glauca Pendula." The Blues Weeping Blue Spruce was chosen in 2008 for the ACS Collector's Conifer of the Year Program.
How to use The Blues Weeping Blue Spruce in the landscape?
The Blues Weeping Blue Spruce would do wonderfully in a rock garden to add color to muted tones as well as movement. You can never go wrong planting this tree as a specimen to bring attention to your property. A few other place we can recommend would be woodland type gardens as well as more urban garden areas.

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!
