Here we have the Balsam Fir. This conical-growing, coniferous evergreen is often a popular choice to use as a Christmas tree! The Balsam Fir features shiny, dark green needles about ½" - 1" in length and is quite fragrant. Not only can you use this fantastic fir as a Christmas tree, but it is an excellent choice to add to your landscaping as an accent, specimen, or windbreak. It is also grown for pulpwood and saw timber. The Balsam Fir prefers a cooler climate and provides food and shelter for wildlife. Reaching anywhere from 45'-75' in height with a spread of 20'-25', the Balsam Fir grows well in moist, cool, well-drained, acidic soil. Hardiness Zones 3-5. Tip: Potted dormant perennials can be kept in a well-lit cool/cold area (ie. Garage, shed, even in a protected area outdoors) until ready for spring planting. Do not allow them to completely dry out. In winter, plants will be shipped dormant.
