Canaan fir is very similar to Balsam fir and in more southern locations should be grown on moist, cold sites preferably a north facing slope. Canaan fir is an open, pyramidal tree, with stiff, horizontal branches, ending in stout, fuzzy twigs, with crowded shiny foliage. Grows best on fertile, moist, well drained soils. Can grow on dry sandy soils once established. Canaan is a good Christmas tree for wetter soils.
This is the first year we are offering Korean fir. It is a small to medium sized evergreen coniferous tree growing to 33 – 60 ft. tall with a trunk diameter of up to 27’. The bark is smooth with resin blisters and grey-brown in color. The leaves are needle-like, flattened, ¾ in. long, glossy dark green above, and with two broad, vividly white bands of stomata below, and slightly notched at the tip. The leaf arrangement is spiral on the shoot, but with each leaf variably twisted at the base so they lie mostly either side of and above the shoot, with fewer below the shoot. The shoots are green-grey at first, maturing pinkish-grey, with scattered fine pubescence. The cones are 3” long, dark purple-blue before maturity; the scale bracts are long, green or yellow, and emerge between the scales in the closed cone. The winged seeds are released when the cones disintegrate at maturity about 5–6 months after pollination. Korean fir is a very popular ornamental plant in gardens in cool climates, grown for its foliage but also for the abundant cone production even on young trees only 3-7’ tall.
Colorado blue spruce, or blue spruce, is an attractive tree often used for Christmas trees or as ornamentals, particularly in the eastern United States and Europe. It is the official state tree of both Colorado and Utah. The species generally reaches a height of 65-115 feet at maturity with a diameter of 2-3 feet. It has a narrow, pyramidal shape and cone-shaped crown. As trees become older, they often take on a more irregular appearance.
