White or Concolor Fir is an attractive conifer and outstanding landscape plant. It has a formal pyramidal shape. Its silvery blue-green foliage makes it an ideal candidate for use as a specimen or accent plant in the landscape. The 1 1/2" long needles are slightly flattened, curve up from the stem, and are soft to the touch. Prefers a rich, moist soil with good drainage. Tolerates drought and heat better than most firs. Full sun is best, but will tolerate some shade. Young plants often develop multiple leaders. This results in a need for pruning and staking to develop a new leader. White Fir is the most adaptable of the firs for landscape use. Hardiness of individual plants depends on seed source. The White Fir can reach 30 to 50 feet in height and a width of 15 to 25 feet. It's cold hardy to zone 4.
