Our Colorado sources provide the hardiest variety, displaying a stunning blue/green color. This tree thrives in zones 4 and 5, making it a perfect choice for those regions.
Not only is the Abies concolor a popular ornamental tree, but it also serves as a classic and festive Christmas tree. Its shade tolerance allows it to grow in various environments, although dense shade may slow its growth. Crushed leaves of this fir emit a strong and refreshing lemony scent.
The Concolor Fir is highly ornamental with needle-like leaves that are green above and have a glaucous blue-white band of stomata below. Its cones are barrel-shaped, about 3 to 6 inches long, and mature in early fall.
In addition to its aesthetic appeal, this tree has a variety of uses. It is commonly used as an excellent Christmas tree due to its foliage color, natural shape, and needle retention. Its wood is light, soft, and coarse-grained, making it suitable for pulpwood, lumber, furniture, and boxes. Not to mention, it provides food and shelter for various wildlife species.
If you're in search of a beautiful, hardy, and versatile tree, the Concolor Fir is the perfect choice. Its adaptability and stunning features make it a must-have for any landscape or seasonal decoration.
