Plant details

This makes a medium-sized tree with striking blue-grey leaves and cylindrical cones, which are green when young and ripening to brown. While most firs prefer slightly acidic soil, this one will also do well on chalk. Its many fine qualities have led to the Royal Horticultural Society giving it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
