The Q&A Archives: Locating Dwarf Alberta Spruce "Blue Wonder"

Question: I have looked all over my area this spring and summer and cannot locate the Picea glauca 'Blue Wonder'. The two nurseries in my area that sell Monrovia plants did not have them and a lot of other nurseries had never heard of them and could not find them listed in their catalogs. Two nurseries said they had seen them a couple of years ago, but could not locate them this year. Can you tell me where I might find them? It's probably too late this year to find one, but maybe I could get one next year if I know where to look.
Thank you.

Answer: Thank you for asking. Monrovia plants are sold nation wide. Unfortunately, I have no way of checking which nurseries or garden centers would have this particular plant in stock on hand or be able to obtain it for you. They are independent stores and each carries its own selection, so you need to check with them directly and see. There is a dealer locator at the web site that is searchable by zip code and provides contact information.
If they do not have it, perhaps they can suggest a susbtitute. Also, selection is usually wider in the spring than it would be now in late summer. I'm sorry I can't be more specific for you and I do hope you find what you are looking for. Best of luck with your search!
