Picea glauca 'Sander's Blue' / Sander's Blue white spruce

Narrow upright Blue form of Alberta Spruce. This Blue plant color is variable. It usually starts out very Blue when young and juvenile and starts turning green as it gets older. On older plants it produces a nice tapestry effect between the Blue and green needles.

'Sander's Blue' is an attractive, slate-Blue form of the Alberta Spruce. With age, the Blue colors mix with green giving a wonderful multi-color effect. Plant this form wherever your garden needs some relief from plain, green foliage. Blends well with all conifers and perennials for companion or as a novel focal point.
