(Picea pungens)

Colorado blue spruce is native to the rocky mountains of the western United States. Blue spruce is widely planted in Canada on residential properties and parks, as it is slow growing, long-lived and cold hardy. Often its pointy needles display a strikingly blue hue of colour but many are also more green than blue. As with any seedlings, there is natural variation to be expected.

Germination: Soak seeds in water for 24 hours, then sow in fresh potting soil. Keep soil moist until signs of germination. A short cold stratification period of 2 weeks at 4 degrees C helps increase germination rate.

Packet contains at least 50 seeds.
