Abies pinsapo 'Glauca'

Abies pinsapo 'Glauca'

Showing off its bright rid pollen structures in the spring, this wonderful Spanish fir is well worth collecting. The puffy stiff needles add a rich texture to any garden that contrasts nicely to other green plants. It is a broadly conical, slow growing, medium sized tree. The red male cones and the female blue green cones appear on the same tree, adding interest. Can grow 12 inches per year.

This cultivar originated as a seedling that was named and introduced to the nursery trade in 1867 by Desfossé and Thuillier Nursery, Orléans, France. It was quite likely that numerous blue-needled clones have been distributed over time under this cultivar name.

The Royal Horticultural Society gave Abies pinsapo ‘Glauca’ their prestigious Award of Garden Merit in 1993.
