Design IdeasStunning and icy blue, this Rocky Mountain native is the ideal forest evergreen on large properties. Use to separate tall multistory buildings or to create shelterbelts and windbreaks. Tall enough to screen views from second or third story windows. Gorgeous in estate-sized forests of broadleaf and conifers, where it stands out against deciduous trees and a blanket of snow.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring.
