Culture:  

The deer resistant blue spruce will thrive in either full or partial sun in fertile, moist, well-drained soils, but tolerates dry conditions better than most other spruces. Avoid pruning it too extremely, as new growth won’t sprout from areas of dead wood where no needles are present. 

Its pyramidal shape makes it the ideal choice for a single outdoor specimen tree intended to be decorated at the holidays. You may even be able to keep a blue spruce in a large container for several years, bringing it indoors for just a few days during the Christmas season rather than having to purchase a cut tree. Its natural wind resistance also makes it ideal—when several specimens are planted in a protecting rank—for privacy screening or a windbreak.
