Engelmann Spruce
Globe Blue Spruce

Engelmann Spruce is a tall, cold resistant tree native to western North America. This high-altitude mountain tree has characteristic loose, scaly bark ranging in colour from reddish-brown to grey.

Birds such as grouse, woodpeckers, nuthatches and thrushes will call this tree home. As Engelmann Spruce can exceed heights of 100 feet, consumers should note it is too large for a normal city lot.

The Globe Blue Spruce is a uniquely shaped evergreen shrub species, with a rounded and compact form. It has silvery-blue needles that can last all winter, which add to its ornamental value.

The Globe Blue Spruce is a cultivar of the Blue Spruce and is especially popular in urban environments for its eye-catching shape, cold-hardiness and high pollution tolerance.
