A member of the glauca (meaning blue leaved) group of pine trees, Picea 'Super Blue' is an award winning, easy to grow and visually stunning fir tree that every garden should have!
Growing to just 2.5m in 10 years, this is also a compact variety which will happily grow in a large tub if kept well-watered and fed regularly, meaning that everyone has the opportunity to grow it, with or without a garden (NB this is not a houseplant).
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Possibly the best blue conifer there is, Super Blue is slow growing with dense, narrowly conical growth, with rigid, prickly, silvery-blue needles, the overall effect is a metallic-like, steely-blue sheen
Grow in moist but well-drained acidic soil with shelter from cold drying winds. Can be grown in full sun or part shade and is easy to maintain, requiring little to no pruning.
An ideal alternative to more traditional Christmas trees, the blue colour intensifies as the tree ages, bringing interest to your garden all year round. In autumn, pale brown cones appear on mature trees creating a delightful display as they contrast with the branches.
Supplied as an established plant in a 2L pot, ready to be planted straight out.
