Info

This is a large-growing fir with long, thick, almost round needles. 'Candicans' is a selection known for it's striking vivid blue-gray needles. Its blue color is exceptional in both summer and winter. Its long needles give it a distinctive, airy appearance reminiscent of some pines. The tree grows in a cone shape, at a rate of 6-12" a year. In many ways it looks like a longer-needled blue spruce, except the needles have round ends and are soft to the touch. Considered one of the best firs for city planting. Exceptionally handsome, CHOICE AND RARE!

A silvery blue form selected in France in 1929, it is beautiful but we have yet to find a spot that it likes here, I am starting to think it may be on the tender side.

Vivid silvery-gray needles make this cultivar of one of our lovely western firs striking; first raised in Europe where our natives have, in the past, been more appreciated than at home. Sun-PSh/Med
