Colorado Blue Spruce thrives in the Colorado montane where we spend summers. The tree is making a comeback after having been severely attacked by a beetle that plagued the species ten or more years ago. They grow tall an thick, their neighbors are the ponderosa and fir trees in the area in which we live. Their foliage is a light turquoise mixed with deeper blue greens, the needles are short and quite densely spaced.
