Blue Christmas conifers

Blue Christmas conifers

In Scandinavia, blue conifers have been trendy at Christmas for several years. Think Juniperus Stricta, the Atlas cedar (Cedrus libani Glauca), the blue Sawara cypress (Chamaecyparis pisifera Squarrosa) and most recently the blue Cypress (Cupressus arizonica Glauca). And this trend is slowly coming our way….

 

It’s blue: Sanders Blue

Nice blue cultivars are also available from the more traditional range. Think of Picea glauca ‘Sanders Blue’. This blue variant of the well-known Conica is a nice alternative. The application needs no explanation: with lights, decorations, on the terrace, in the living room … like the Conica but just a little different. And if you don’t sell them for Christmas, then always in spring.
