colorado spruce

I got a little colorado spruce as a Christmas tree this last December and I put it outside after. It's started to develop pine cones.Can anyone advise me on the care it needs?


  • If it's ordinary picea pungens, lovely grey-blue needles and a rather spiky habit, then give it room and almost anywhere in a generally su nny site will do, but allow for it to get to 50ft. If it's one of the cultivars, most of which are much smaller, then it can make a beautiful addition to the back of a border, or even in a pot, but ultimately, it'll be a BIG pot.  Lovely tree, in all its forms, tolerant of most soils except waterlogged areas.  What#s the label say, so we can advise on size etc
