Abies balsamea 'Hudsonia Group' Plant

This eye-catching small conifer is perfect for growing where space is restricted. It types a curved shrub that gets to no more than about 60cm (2ft) high. Uncommonly for a conifer, it does not generate any cones. Its natural simply foliage is white beneath and are largely organized on the launches in a v-shape. Young vegetation is sometimes broken by snow so it is worth offering some security on freezing night time.
