Abies concolor 'Wattezii' / Wattezii white fir

Abies concolor 'Wattezii' is a low and slow-growing plant wit an irregular habit. The new shoots emerge creamy and change to greyish Blue. In ten years up to 59 x 47 inches (150 x 120 cm).

Discovered before 1900 as a mutation by D. Wattez, Netherlands. (RHS Encyclopedia of Conifers, 2012)

Exceedingly rare. Needles pale yellow when young, becoming yellowish-white, and finally assuming a pale Blue color. Pretty in May and June. Slower than normal but not a dwarf.
