Abies balsamea 'Tyler Blue' / Tyler Blue balsam fir

Abies balsamea 'Tyler Blue' is a compact pyramidal tree with short, distinctively bright Blue needles. In ten years 48 x 24 inches (120 x 60 cm).

George Tyler of New Hampshire had a very Blue seedling of Balsam fir show up in his Christmas tree plantation which he had marked "not for sale". He allowed Greg Williams of Kate Brook Nursery in Vermont to propagate scions from the tree. Later he found that one of his customers had cut the tree and hauled it away. This Balsam fir is typical of the species in being a conical tree, but unique with its Blue foliage. (Porterhowse Nursery/ACS Record)
