The mystery of Picea pungens 'Baby Blue'
Picked up a Baby Blue. Tag said height was 12 ft.
Googled to check out the facts. Found only one link. It turns out this is a seedling tree grown in Ontario. apparently, the parent produces nothing but good blue spruce from seed.
So I emailed them about the size. They said it grows to normal size.
If this is a seedling it should not be called 'Baby Blue', since each seedling would need to have a different name. Secondly, a name like "Baby" + a tag that says 12 ft is terribly misleading.
Lat week I was looking at a "neaon" (different post), which also seems like someones imagination rather than an accepted name.
Is this a common problem with Conifers.
Other than that it looks like a very nice tree.
