Comments: An extremely silver-blue form of Colorado Blue Spruce. Dwarf pyramidal habit of stiff needles. Baby Blue Eyes prefers cool climates so will struggle in the deep south landscape. Striking accent, formal hedge or windscreen. A chance seedling of Picea pungens 'Moerheimii' found in Silverton, Oregon in 1972.
