Fat Albert Blue Spruce is a cone-shaped evergreen that widens as the tree matures. Its needles emerge bright blue in the spring and maintain their color well throughout the year. It tolerates some pruning.
This tree works as an accent plant or in a mixed border or screen. It prefers full sun but will tolerate light shade. It prefers moist, well-drained soils and is somewhat drought tolerant once established but needs consistent water when young.
