Description

An unusual and attractive conifer, Abies concolor 'Wintergold' is slow growing with buttery golden-yellow needles, which give fantastic winter colour. New growth in spring is green, gradually turning more yellow as the year heads towards winter. Established plants can be spreading initially but generally develop a conical, upright habit in time.

Abies concolor 'Wintergold' will give its best display of leaf colour in a sunny position and ideally would prefer well drained soil. In shade the needle colour will be more towards lime green. Planting this is wet or waterlogged areas is not recommended.
