Product Information

Picea 'Super Blue' is an easy to grow and visually stunning award winning member of the glauca (meaning blue leaved) group of pine trees that every garden should have!

Growing to just 2.5m in 1 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 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to be planting out.

Care Information

Planting Advice for Picea pungens 'Super Blue':

  • Grow in moist but well-drained acidic soil. Shelter from cold drying winds.
  • Can be grown in full sun or part shade.
  • Conifers need good drainage so do not plant in very heavy clay soil.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place. If your soil is very alkaline, add in some ericaceous compost.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling)and firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

 

Aftercare advice for Picea 'Super Blue':

  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish, especially if planted up in a pot.
  • Remove any weeds and keep well mulched.

 

Pruning Advice for Super Blue Fir Tree:

  • Easy to keep, no pruning is needed.
  • Any damaged branches can be removed if necessary, in late spring-early summer.
