Sander’s Blue is a new sport of a very popular a href="http://www.havlis.cz/karta_en.php?kytkaid=387">Conica spruce. It has bluish-green, prickly needles and deep green inside the plant, and grows slower than Conica. 10-year old plant will be about 120 cm tall. It naturally forms a dense shrub of a strictly conical shape. Pruning is not needed.

This spruce is not picky about soil type but hates extremes: too wet or too dry location will mean a slow death of the plant. But grown in equally moist soil it will make a beautiful specimen plant or a nice feature in a small border. It is a great pot plant as it can withstand hard frost it can be placed outside in a container all year round. Just beware of tiny spiders that might come to visit the plant in too dry weather and spray it with a suitable insecticide. Hardy to about -40°C (USDA zone 3).
