Picea pungens or the Spring Ghost Colorado Spruce is a slow-growing upright conifer with light blue-green needles. Evergreen and hardy to zones 3-8. In spring new growth emerges a wonderful cream white which covers the entire tree. By June the white needles fade to the normal blue-green again. Prefers sun/partial shade in well-drained soil. 6' tall x 3' wide in 10 years.

Instead of using commercial fertilizers and plant food, why not use some scraps from your kitchen that would otherwise end up in the trash or compost bin to amend and improve your garden soil naturally?
