Comments: Cupressina is much bluer than Norway Spruce; adding to it's appeal as a specimen plant.  It's tight branching habit makes it easy to maintain.  This Columnar Spruce is useful in groupings, as a windbreak, or close to a walkway, home, or patio.  Very hardy.  Found in the Thuringian Forest of Germany before 1904.  Low Maintenance.
