Abies concolor

Fir - Concolor

The Concolor Fir has been steadily gaining popularity as a Christmas tree. This conifer exhibits a blue-green color, with longer needles than most other Fir trees. The needles remain on the tree long after cutting. Pleasantly scented, described as citrus or orange-like. Able to tolerate both the cold and the heat, this tree will grow in southern regions where some others will not.

Sometimes known as the White Fir, this evergreen is widely used in the home landscape. Generally disease and pest resistant, this Fir tree is a good alternative to other evergreens such as Colorado Blue Spruce, White Spruce and Black Hills Spruce.

Our plants come with extra large and fibrous root systems, ready to plant and flourish!
