Introducing the Abies concolor ssp. concolor - Concolor Fir, White Fir from the Apache Arizona source. This stunning tree showcases a beautiful blue color that adds a unique touch to any landscape. While not as winter hardy as the Colorado sources, it thrives in zones 6 and 7. .The Concolor Fir is an ornamental tree with needle-like leaves that are green to glaucous blue-green above and have a lemony scent when crushed. The cones are barrel-shaped and about 6-12cm long. The White Fir, as it is also commonly called, is native to the western United States, reaching heights of 130-150ft and diameters of 3 to 4ft. It is characterized by a straight trunk and a spire-like crown. While it tolerates shade and grows best on moist loamy soils, it can also survive on dry, thin soils. As a Christmas tree, the White Fir has good foliage color, a pleasing shape, and excellent needle retention. Its range spans from the Rocky Mountains to the Coast Range, and it can be found at varying elevations. White Fir is commonly propagated by seed, although rooting and grafting have been successful. Beyond its ornamental appeal, the wood of the White Fir is light, soft, and coarse-grained, making it suitable for pulpwood, lumber, furniture, and boxes. This tree is also important for wildlife, providing a food source for deer, porcupines, squirrels, and grouse. Consider adding the Abies concolor ssp. concolor - Concolor Fir, White Fir to your landscape for its stunning beauty and versatile uses. Highly recommended in zones 6 and 7.
