Picea pungens Fat Albert
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!
The Fat Albert Spruce is a cold-hardy evergreen variety with silvery-blue needles, and a large, tear-drop shape. It is deer resistant, and considered a good choice for xeriscaping projects as it is quite drought tolerant.
