A very popular, extremely hardy evergreen with large, dense branching, and a strong central leader. Makes an excellent windbreak. Covered with long silver-blue pointy needles. Far more reliable color than other species. A tree of great beauty and color. New growth emerges a brighter blue than exsiting needles. Rough gray bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape. Deer do not particularly care for this tree. Aggressive root structure which will pull any available water and nutrients from surrounding soils.
