If you love Blue Spruce, this is the Blue Spruce you are thinking about! It differs from the species because of its consistent steel blue color and its dense, tight slow growing form and it's a difference that will take you breath away! You'll be astounded by the color show it puts on and also by the much smaller footprint it holds in the landscape, a distinct advantage over the species. 'Fat Albert' loves full sun and, even though it is smaller and slower growing, it should avoid being planted too close to houses and electrical wiring.
