Colorado Blue Spruce Water Requirements
When looking for a low-maintenance tree that can survive under mostly any condition, the Colorado Blue Spruce tree is the answer.
These evergreens are big, strong and can live to be over 500 years old in the right conditions. How a property owner can ensure the growth and life of the blue spruce is by essentially leaving it alone. Blue spruce trees can survive adverse conditions, like drought and frost. The reason why blue spruce trees can survive periods without water, because its root systems are one of the best at soaking up water and moisture, allowing it to survive drought conditions in the mid-western and western states where it’s naturally grown. It’s believed the blue spruce can absorb about 1,000 gallons of water, which is actually a great quality when it comes soaking up moisture in a consistently wet yard.
But, despite its ability to hold water and moisture, too much of it can be a problem. In fact, when these evergreens are overwatered, especially at a young age, it can have trouble maturing and can possibly die. The best thing is to water it, sparingly if necessary then leave it alone.
It really doesn’t get any easier than that.
