Fir - Golden Spanish
The Golden Spanish Fir, Abies pinsapo 'Aurea', has a conical shape and needles that are flat, blunt and yellow in color. Being a slow grower, it is a tall evergreen, columnar when young, and maturing to a more irregular habit. Being sharp, dark green to blue, the needles are arranged radially on the shoot. In the spring the buds are a beautiful raspberry color. The cones are yellow to green before ripening to brown and releasing seeds; are cylindrical in shape. Abies pinsapo 'Aurea' performs best when given partial shade and ample water in well drained soil, but tolerates dry, alkaline conditions. This dense fir enjoys a good amount of sun but prefers cooler climates and moist well drained soils.
