Abies pinsapo 'Glauca' Plant

This makes a medium-sized shrub with stunning blue-grey results in and round cones, which are natural when young and maturing to darkish. While most firs choose a little bit acid ground, this one will also do well on chalk. Its many excellent features have led to the Royal Horticultural Society giving it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit.
