Description

Also known as the Nordmann Fir, this is the tree which is often seen at Christmas-time as a more expensive alternative to the Norway Spruce. It is becoming ever more popular as a Christmas tree because it has luxuriant foliage with attractive flattened leaves which don’t shrivel and drop in heated rooms. It makes a large, handsome tree, fast-growing after the first few years, and is often planted to replace the disease-prone Silver Fir.

Site and soil

The Caucasian Fir requires deep, moist soil in full sun, although it does best if given a little shade in its early years. It does well at high altitudes.

Height and spread

After 10 years: 8m x 3m
After 20 years: 15m x 4m

Leaf and bark

The leaves are 2-3.5cm long, needle-like but flattened. The upper surface is glossy green, blue-white below. The bark is grey and smooth, splitting into squarish plates as it ages.

Flower, seed and fruit

The small brownish flowers are produced in clusters in late April; the female flowers only appear near the top of the tree. The green cones, which are about 15cm in length, ripen to brown in autumn.
