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!
