Plant details

The Nordmann fir is a very handsome, easy to grow, and disease-resistant tree with aromatic dark green foliage. It is one of the best trees to use as a Christmas tree because it retains its needles well, even when cut. It also forms a shapely tree that is not too bushy, with good space between the branches. Plant on a rich, free-draining soil in full sunshine to encourage plants to form good shapely trees.
