Description

'Tyler Blue' was found growing at a tree farm in New Hampshire. It has a very narrow pyramidal form, with rich, teal blue-green needles. Balsam fir is native to the colder regions of Canada and the northeastern United States. The slow growth rate makes it an ideal low-maintenance plant for lawns in cold climates. In the Chicago area, it is prized as a Christmas tree because of its fragrance and symmetry. It grows in full sun to partial shade, in a slightly acidic, well-drained soil. It is not tolerant of heat and needs humidity.
