Are you searching for the perfect Christmas tree? A blue spruce is a gorgeous choice. These trees are often used for stuffing pine-pillows. The needles are 1 to 1 ½ inched long and bluish-gray in color. It is very attractive and has excellent needle retention.
One of the best attributes of these trees is that they have wonderful symmetrical shapes (this makes them look great from every angle). I addition, the branches are stiff and sturdy making them excellent for supporting ornaments. They may not be the best choice of tree to have around children, however, as they are quite prickly.
*If you allow your blue spruce to dry out, EVERY needle will fall on the floor.
