Striking upright blue fir. Although the actually blue isn’t as bright as in some varieties, the fact that this is a fastigiate form, with a dense upright branching structure, gives the whole plant a very intense appearance. When established and happy will grow up to 30cm a year, and makes a stunning addition to a garden, whether it is a heathland, alpine or generally mixed scheme. I don’t recommend pungens types for container growing. Needs a bright, well drained site to thrive.
