Glossy Dark Green
Nordmann Fir has a pyramidal form. Can grow to 100 feet, with glossy, dark green needles. Recommended hardiness zone 4.
The Caucasian fir is Native to the Caucasus mountains and northeastern Turkey. It grows at elevations of 3,000 to 7,200 feet above sea level on mountains with an annual rainfall of over 40 inches so it is best suited for a northern climate. It dislikes hot, dry summers and clay soils. It casts dense shade with branches that often reach the ground. It is easy to transplant and is one of the easier Abies sp. to grow. Leaves provide winter interest and a great backdrop to other landscape plants. The shoots are often pubescent (hairy). Commonly grown as a commercial Christmas tree, the wood is soft and white and is used for construction or as paper pulp.
Insects, Diseases, and Other Plant Problems: None serious. Balsam woolly adelgids, bark beetles, spruce budworms, aphids, bagworms, and scale. Cankers, heart rot, root rot, needle rust, and twig blight. Intolerant of urban pollution often damaged by deer.
