Picea pungens glauca 'Fat Albert' is a smaller cultivar of what is normally a much larger tree, but it is not small. As described in the online descriptions at the Monrovia web site: "Slow grower to 10 to 15 feet tall, 10 to 12 feet wide." It needs full sun and an evenly moist yet well drained soil. You should allow it a space at least 15 feet across so it has ample room to grow and for good air circulation around it. I hope this helps.
