Abies concolor 'Slama' / Slama white fir

Abies concolor 'Slama' is a slow growing, dwarf, irregular-globose selection of white fir with uniform, short, radiating branching; and short, light-blue, fleshy needles. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 12 inches (30 cm) tall and wide, an annual growth rate of around 1 inch (2.5 cm).

This cultivar originated as a witch's broom found in the early 2000s by Ján Sláma of Ostrava, Czech Republic. He named the plant in honor of himself.
