Description

'La Veta' is a shrubby form of white fir. It has dense branches of flat teal blue needles that curve upwards slightly. New growth is a contrasting shade of mint green. The form is rather irregular when young, and when older will tend to have a flat top. After ten years it can be expected to reach four feet tall and five or six feet wide. White firs are the most tolerant of the firs with growing conditions in the Chicago area, but prefer a good, organic soil that is well-drained.
