Colorado Spruce

Tree Description:

0-024    Many Colorado spruce trees (Picea pungens) can be seen throughout the Midwest, brought here from their native range in the Rocky Mountains. Some specimens were selected for their blue-tinted glaucous needles, giving them the common name blue spruce. They can thrive in our climate while young, but mature specimens may suffer from fungus diseases in the heat and humidity of central Illinois.
