MATURE PERSISTENT CONIFER
Family: Pine (Pinaceae)
Origin: Turkey, Caucasus
Bloom time: April – May
In our climatic conditions Nordmann fir reaches heights of up to 30 m. Younger trees have a wider, conical crown which becomes column-like with age. It boasts 2-3 cm long, extremely thick, lined needles growing in a brush-like arrangement. They are glossy dark-green above and have two bands of stomata below. When rubbed in a hand needles release a distinct fruit aroma. Pistillate cones are first light green and as they age they turn brownish and are up to 15 cm long.
In a way it is easier to grown than European silver fir. It tolerates lower humidity and drier soils. It should be planted in rather less acidic substrate which is suitable for ornamental woody plants.
To a degree, this fir even tolerates polluted environments, which is why it is often planted in municipal and gardens. It is also grown for Christmas tree production. This wonderful tree with a regularly conical shape is gaining more and more popularity.
