Back to Conifers

Picea pungens 'Blue Diamond'
This attractive, evergreen conifer is slow growing and forms a pyramid shape as it matures. Its silvery-blue needles make a striking feature in the garden, and also make it an ideal Christmas tree for those who wish to move away from the bright green hue of traditional trees. The blue intensifies as the tree ages, bringing colour and interest to the garden all year round.

Pale brown cones appear in autumn, creating a lovely display on more mature specimens. It can be grown in full sun or partial shade, and requires minimal pruning to keep it in shape.
