Hoopsii 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 Hoopsii Spruce is a cold-hardy variety that has attractive silvery-blue foliage. It is a dense evergreen tree with a distinctive pyramidal form. The needles are highly ornamental and retain their color throughout the winter, which allowed it to win the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.

The Hoopsii Spruce, is a Blue Spruce cultivar and is popular due to being relatively low-maintenance and having a high pollution tolerance.
