DESCRIPTION: Picea pungens ‘Avatar’ is a classic Colorado Blue Spruce manifesting the best qualities this species offers. A seedling selection of P.p. ‘Moerheim’, the exceptionally lush blue foliage is especially striking in spring as the new needles emerge as soft blue powder puffs. The distinctive tiered pattern of branching contributes a “wow” factor both as a young tree today but more so in a mature specimen. With a slower growth rate than other popular cultivars, this heritage quality tree can develop to its full majesty in many sizes of landscapes.
Available in 5, 10 and 26 Gallon pots
