A German selection of dwarf Balsam Fir and a superior cultivar than the more readily available 'Nana'. Hardly surprising that the Germans would have a superior cultivar and if enough of these get planted, they might counteract Volkswagen's emissions cover-up. Grows just 1"-3" per year and reaches 2'x2' in 10 years. Zone 3-8.
