A beautiful, tall, Colorado spruce tree is something to see in its natural habitat, on high mountainous terrain. Your yard may not be optimal for a large and normally mountain-bred tree, of that type. But, don’t despair. The Montgomery Spruce is a dwarf variant, reaching the size of no more than the average adult human.
These trees are just as pretty as the originals, have the same silver blue foliage and attractive shape. They have simply been bred to avoid reaching
those mountain-worthy thirty feet heights. At about three feet they are beautiful accent plants and decorate a rockery very well. These plants do well with well-drained, acidic soil and lots of sunshine. Deer do not seem to like this tree, but aphids and spider mites might.
- The blue spruce that is located in the state of Colorado can grow up to a whopping 100 feet in height!
- Spruce trees require acidic soil, as well as an area that has full sun exposure at all times.
- Aphids and spider mites can sometimes be a risk for these trees when it comes to them being eaten.
