In a Nutshell:
* The Colorado sources of Abies concolor are the hardiest that we sell. They exhibit a blue/green color and

do their best in zones 4 and 5.
* It is popular as an ornamental landscaping tree and as a Christmas Tree. It is sometimes known as a Concolor fir. more...
* Plants are very shade tolerant but growth is slower in dense shade.
* The crushed leaves have a strong lemony scent.
* The wood lacks a distinctive odor and so does not impart a flavor to items stored in it. Thus it can be used for making tubs for storing food items. more...
