White Fir Tree 'Archer's Dwarf'

Fir trees are evergreen coniferous trees. They can be confused with other types of conifer. The way to tell a fir tree is by the way the needles grow, and by the cones. The soft needles are attached to the branch by what looks like a suction cup, and detach from the branch without leaving a peg behind. The fir tree cones grow upwards, like candles, rather than hanging down. They are softer than other coniferous trees, and they open up at the end of the season to spread their seeds. The trees can grow very large - up to 80 m. - and tend to be somewhat conical in shape. 'Archer's Dwarf' is a dwarf evergreen conifer with an irregular spreading habit. It has silver to blue/grey fern like needles and will bear cones after approximately 40 years. It has a growth rate of around 6"/15cm. per year, to a mature size of around 0.90 after 10 years
