A Colorado Blue Spruce with Lime Needles? You Betcha.

PICEA PUNGENS GEBELLE'S GOLDEN SPRING, A YELLOW NEEDLED BLUE SPRUCE.


Last year I ordered this rare clone of the Colorado Blue named Gebelle's Golden Spring® PP 10,643 Spruce from Klehm's Song Sparrow Nursery and I must admit, it's delightful. It may look ordinary for most of the year, but in spring, its breathtaking young foliage is a stunning, vivid, bright yellow, which fades to green during the summer. My plant is still young, and barely two feet tall, but imagine which this tree will look like in ten years when it is 8 feet tall! I can barely wait.
