Features

notes
Otherwise known as the White or Colorado Fir, Abies con Violacea is a stunning specimen tree, growing to approximately 12 metres high. One of the bluest firs with long, soft needles, it bears yellow, catkin like make flowers and small yellow-brown female flowers in spring followed by grey-blue, upward facing cones that mature to brown.   
Insights
