Balsam Fir - best known as a "Christmas tree" - doesn't just look great in living rooms; it's a terrific tree for your yard too!

This fir grows tall and narrow. Balsam Fir is cold hardy, shade tolerant, and will thrive in most soil types and moisture levels.

Cooks Blue Balsam Fir is a blue tinged selection of Balsam Fir. Preferring slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils, this beautiful tree is loved among Christmas tree growers due to its striking color and pyramidal shape.

As Cooks Blue Balsam Fir matures, you’ll notice that the color of the needles will intensify. Keep in mind this selection was grown from seed and the needles can vary in color from shades of green to blue. Nitrogen rich soil helps the needles retain their vibrant color.

Please be aware that this variety does not do well in intense heat, drying winds, or seasonal drought.
