Picea Pungens " Blue Spruce "

Post  hinksy on Sat May 29, 2010 5:42 pm

I found this blue spruce some years ago now on a garden centre bargain/sick bay , so i gave it another chance , this one is now in the middle of new/old foliage change , they can be a bit of a problem tree , ...but this one as yearly spray of fungiside, and the pest to watch out for is green spider mite , like the red one very hard to see with the naked eye , especially with my eyesight , usually it seems as though the tree is going through early needle loss , but it is these litttle blighter sucking the sap !!!

What can I say???? Fab you lous. Truly this tree had you name on it the day you found it at the garden centre.


Is it possible to show some additional pics a bit further away from the tree?

Yep, saying again, this tree really gets my juices flowing. Love the jin, the height, and most of all the shape. I wish I owned it.

Yes, it does look great, but (trying to keep up with my 'reputation' Rolling Eyes Very Happy ):

1/ I would reduce the jin to its simplest expression: can't really tell you why, but to me large jins don't fit with Colorado Blue Spruce.

2/ The bottom branch seems a bit weak (yelowish tones in the foliage): although the top is treally great, I would shorten the branches so as to induce more strength in the lower part of the tree. Show us a picture at eye's level, I'm pretty sure the lower part looks a bit "feathered off" (excuse my English).

But please don't take what I'm saying the wrong way: I do think this tree is great and that so far you've done a great job, it's simply that I would like it to be be an answer to those wise guys who say "No way, you can't make a decent bonsai out that kind of stufff..."*

Cool
