Description

A stiffly upright, majestic tree with splendid steel-blue needles that are wonderfully tactile. We have found that small sections of the stems may be used as a comb, if caught short on a windy day!

Once established Abies pinsapo 'Glauca' has subtle, violet-purple cones which can be found nestled in the branches.

Although a very handsome tree once settled down and growing well, this is very slow growing initially and so not a plant for instant gratification!

Supplied Size: 3L pots (approx 3 years old, freshly potted for new season, 15 - 25 cm tall)


  • Position: Full sun.
  • Soil: Well drained, fertile soil.
  • Hardiness: Hardy.
  • Rate of Growth: Slow until established then vigorous.
  • Habit: Eventually a large tree with a pyramidal, upright habit.
    • Height: 20 m (65 ft).
    • Spread: 8 m (26 ft).
  • Notes: Abies pinsapo 'Glauca' is initially slow growing and they are available as a young, small plants. After one or two years, once established, it starts to grow at a much more vigorous rate.
