The Q&A Archives: Tree Characteristics

Question: What are the differences between Foxtail Spruce and Baby Blue Eyes Spruce? The size, thickness, denseness?

Answer: Foxtail Spruce is an open, pyramidal tree with longer needles at the base of the shoot than at the tip. It is a tightly branched extremely narrow evergreen conifer with twisted blue needles that form tufts at end of branches. In full sun, it's a slow grower to 10 to 15 feet tall, 7 to 8 feet wide, becoming larger with age.

Baby Blue Eyes Spruce is a new selection that has deep blue color. The silvery blue foliage makes a striking accent to any landscape. It has a broad pyramidal habit, grows best in full sun and reaches 40' high and 13' wide at maturity.

They are equally dense in branching habit.
