Abies grandis--Grand Fir, Giant Fir
Hardiness Zones: 6
Height: 100 ft
Spread: 35 ft
Type: narrow-leaved evergreen
Annual Growth Rate: 12 to 18 inches
Comments: Grand Fir can reach heights of over 200 feet in its native, west coast habitat. In the eastern U.S. and in landscape situations it will probably be less robust. The bright green leaves have two light colored stripes on the lower surface. Flat-looking branches
with long needles make this a unique tree, and the dark green overall color gives it a beautiful contrast to many of the more
everyday evergreen species.
