Blue Spruce Tree – Fat Albert, scientifically known as Picea Pungens Fat Albert, is a dense and compact evergreen tree prized for its striking appearance and rugged resilience. With its pyramidal shape and large stout branches, it serves as an ideal accent tree for various landscape settings.

Thriving in full sun and well-draining soil, this evergreen boasts long, very pointy silvery-blue needles that emerge in spring, adding a touch of color and texture to the garden. Its ornamental foliage retains its vibrant blue hue throughout the winter, enhancing the winter landscape.

Reaching a height of about 15 feet with a spread of 10 feet at maturity, Fat Albert Blue Spruce is well-suited for smaller home landscapes. Its slow growth rate ensures that it maintains its compact form while providing long-lasting beauty.

Highly adaptable to various soil types and pH levels, this tree is drought-tolerant and can thrive in both dry and moist conditions. Additionally, it exhibits excellent tolerance to urban pollution, making it suitable for inner city environments.

With its low canopy and rugged resilience, Blue Spruce Tree – Fat Albert is suitable for planting under power lines or as a focal point in gardens of any size. Its longevity, with a lifespan of 80 years or more under ideal conditions, ensures that it will continue to enhance the landscape for generations to come.
