Description varieties of Colorado Spruce:

Colorado Blue Spruce Trees The Colorado Blue Spruce are tall trees that require a lot of space to grow. They grow up to a height of 25 m to 40 m with a branch spread as wide as 6 to 11 m. Although, it is more drought resistant than other types of spruce trees, a moist rich soil is very important for its growth. However, in dry, hot weather, young Colorado Blue trees need to be watered daily. These trees require full sunlight and are prone to the attack of the Spruce gall aphid, spider mite and the spruce budworm. This variety of spruce trees should be pruned during early spring. Due to their massive size, these trees can be used as windbreak, screen or fence. The Colorado blue spruce is the slowest growing types among the different spruce trees. The scientific name of the tree is Picea pungens var. glauca. Colorado Spruce Trees A cousin of the blue spruce trees variety (the Colorado blue spruce), the Colorado spruce or Picea pungens grows up to 18 m tall. It is a medium-sized tree and it attains a spread of 6 m when mature. It has thin, stout needle like leaves that vary from dull gray-green to bright glaucous blue in color. A big drawback of the tree is its susceptibility to canker disease that disfigures it while it is still young. If it escapes the canker diseases then it becomes another attention catcher that grows in a hedge form.
