Abies fraseri 'Kline's Nest'
Compact White Fir
Abies are evergreen conifers, widespread in Asia, Central America, Europe, North America and North Africa. Often very tall, with spiralled branches bearing flattened, linear leaves. The seed-cones stand upright on the branches unlike Spruces which have pendulous cones. Young cones are very eye-catching, ranging in colours from white, green, blueish violet and a purple red.
Abies fraseri 'Kline's Nest' is a compact, low-spreading Fir. Its needles are glossy green and short with purple seed cones held upright on the branches.
