[a.k.a White Fir]
Also commonly known as White Fir, Concolor Fir transplants are widely used as a landscape ornamental tree, and thrive all over the Eastern US. They grow naturally from the Rocky Mountains all the way to the West Coast
Concolor Fir transplants (a.k.a White Fir transplants) are somewhat similar in general appearance to the Colorado Blue Spruce when mature, meaning it is a very attractive tree with a medium greenish blue color and fantastic aroma. However, the similarities end there, as Concolor are a species with a look all to themselves. Concolor Fir transplants are fast growing, and can reach as high as 70 feet during a lifespan of up to 300 years.
The Concolor Fir has softer needles about an inch long, and produce a pleasant aroma. The cones of this “true Fir” species are about 4 inches long on average, and point up instead of down as with other evergreens. Concolor are somewhat shade tolerant, and grow on both moist loamy soils and drier sandy soils. This species will grow in clay, although somewhat slower than in more sandy and loamy soils.
