Picea pungens 'Frieda'
Here is a highly desirable, miniature globose selection of Colorado blue spruce with very short, dense steely blue needles. The branching is radial and congested adding to the look. This one grows 1-2 inches per year, so will be approximately 18 inches tall and 30 inches wide in 10 years. Originating in Pregarten, Austria in the early 1990's by Franz Etzelstorfer, and named to honor his wife. Hardy to zone 4.
