Blue Spruce Tree – Montgomery (Botanical Name: Picea Pungens Montgomery) is a charming dwarf conifer tree prized for its striking pyramidal shape and intense silver-blue foliage. Unlike the species, this cultivar starts as a dense mound and eventually develops into a miniature Christmas tree-like shape. This makes it a versatile and eye-catching addition to any garden composition.

This compact shrub boasts attractive silvery blue evergreen foliage that remains vibrant throughout the winter months. It adds year-round interest and color to the landscape. With its slow growth rate, this tree typically reaches a height of about 10 feet at maturity, with a spread of 8 feet. Its low canopy makes it suitable for planting under power lines or in areas with limited space.

Thriving in full sun to partial shade, Montgomery Blue Spruce is highly adaptable to various growing conditions, including both dry and moist soils. However, it is crucial to ensure that the soil is well-draining, as this cultivar does not tolerate standing water. Considered drought-tolerant, Montgomery Blue Spruce is an excellent choice for xeriscaping or moisture-conserving landscapes.

With its ability to withstand environmental salt and urban pollution, this evergreen is well-suited for planting in both urban and suburban environments. Whether used as a focal point in a garden bed or as part of a mixed border, this cultivar brings a touch of elegance and beauty to any outdoor space.

Overall, Blue Spruce Tree – Montgomery stands out as a versatile and hardy ornamental tree. With its distinctive pyramidal shape and intense silver-blue needles, it adds a unique charm to gardens and landscapes for years to come.

Each plant comes in a #6 (6 gallon) growers pot. The plant shown is an example of what you will receive, all plants are individuals and we strive to pick out the best for you.
