Abies nordmanniana (Nordmann/Caucasian Fir)
Introduced from Northern Turkey in 1840, this striking conifer has risen steeply in popularity over recent years for being a ‘needle fast’ Christmas tree.
Arguably the most attractive of the firs, it can grow immensely tall with some specimens in Europe attaining 85m in height.
Its tiered branches support dark green leaves 2-3cm in length with cones that can grow up to 20cm. It is very robust and disease resistant but our advice is to plant after the 25th December for municipal plantings!
Like most firs it tends to scorch up in very hot climates but is well suited for growing in the UK.
Mature Height: 20m+
