A well known and adaptable fir suitable for many landscape uses. The soft, attractive needles are 1-2" long and vary from blue-green to silver-gray in color. When crushed they give off a distinct citrus odor. Plants develop an upright-conical habit and will mature 30-50' in height. The species has an exceptionally large native range that sprawls throughout western North America from Idaho to the Baja Peninsula. Some of the most spectacular specimens can be seen in Yosemite National Park where they mingle with giant sequoias.
