Compact white fir (Abies concolor ‘Compacta’) is a round evergreen conifer that can reach 8 feet in height and width with full sun to partial shade and moderate moisture conditions. The flat, upward-pointing needles are an unusual shade of pale blue-gray. The growth rate is very slow, at two to three inches per year, and the branches grow into irregular patterns. Blooms are inconspicuous, but there are showy green and brown cones that point upward, a characteristic of true firs. It can be used as a specimen or a mixed border.
