Abies concolor 'Sherwood Blue' / Sherwood Blue white fir

Abies concolor 'Sherwood Blue' is an upright form of white fir with pyramidal form, sparse, open branching, and extremely blue foliage, said by some to rival that of 'Candicans'. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 10 feet (3 m) tall and 4 feet (1.3 m) wide, an annual growth rate of around 12 inches (30 cm).

This cultivar originated as a seedling selected by Andy Sherwood, of Gresham Oregon, USA.
