Siberian Fir
no image

Siberian Fir is an evergreen tree best known for its strong aroma. This tree's needles are popular for essential oils and aromatherapy. It also grows softwood that is used for furniture and wood pulp. This species is very cold hardy and shade tolerant.

This species is bright green and conical shaped. Most interesting is its upright blue cones that fade into brown as they mature.

Smooth Sumac is an excellent shrub for both its ornamental appeal and tolerance of difficult planting sites. You'll love the attractive pyramidal spikes of hairy, red berries that emerge on female plants and the fern-like foliage that covers both male and female varieties.

Ensure you give Smooth Sumac enough space to spread out due to its high suckering nature. While not ideal for small, urban yards, this shrub will make a stunning border along a woodland edge or roadside.

Note:These plants typically reach maturity and make their sex easily known (females producing fruit) in their 3rd or 4th year of growth. Our seedlings are too young to identify their sex.
