Fir - Rocky Mountain
Arizonica Glauca, Abies l. 'Arizonica Glauca', is also called Blue Cork Bark Fir, Arizona Rocky Mountain Fir.
It is a dwarf conical that is densely packed with powder-blue needles that radiate around the stems. The blue is not as deep as some, but coupled with the irregular, upright habit, makes it a wonderful addition to a landscape.
The male cones are bluish and borne beneath the leaves, while the female cones are purple and borne upright near the top of the crown.
It needs well drained soils, but is drought tolerant when established. Very slow growing, this plant can be used as colorful patio plant, small landscape feature, Bonsai, or in larger rock garden.
'Arizonica Glauca' performs best when planted where it receives some afternoon shade and protection from hot drying winds.
