This pyramidal evergreen conifer can reach 30 feet in height with full sun and moist soil conditions. The flat needles curve upward and are a startling shade of pale blue-gray. It makes a fine specimen for a lawn. This slow-growing cultivar originated as a chance seedling found in France in 1929. The white fir withstands city conditions better than any other fir and is more resistant to heat and drought. It is one of the best firs for the Midwest.
